as far as your swap goes, you`ll need a older HEI with vacuum advance and mechanical advance, as the computer controlled HEI used the computer to advance the timing and had no mechanical advance. as far as the gauges go, the sending unit should bolt right up to your 350, as the 305 and 350 blocks are only different in bore size. I installed a Rallye pak gauge cluster in my 86 cutlass from a 82 cutlass calias, I had to swap some of the wires in the harness around, and all I did for sending units was get ones for a 85 camaro Z28 that had a rallye pak. GM sending units are pretty much the same. the sending unit for oil pressure should be in the rear of the block by the distributor, just install the one you intend to use. as for the check engine light removing the bulb works, but in my 86 cutlass, a friend removed a chip from somewhere behind the glove box and the light went out.
