Sorry about your dad.

Welcome to the site, if you post your question in the engine section someone should come along to help you. Oh and that 305 it's a V8 not a V6. check online or go to your local parts store and ask about pertronix ignition conversion kit cheap and easy to install takes like 10 min and you won't have to worry about points anymore.JMO

chevy and GMC used a V-6 that was a 305 CI displacement.It was common in the early 60s trucks and busses...etc.
Are you asking how to Gap the points? Does it have spark? what is the problem?
Sorry to hear about your father, I am sure he will be missed for an eternity.

I think it was called a turo flow 305 IIRC. I have only seen 2 or 3 of them.
They are pretty big, kinda like a big block V 6 LOL.

They were a common engine in the larger GMC's, I ruined one in a 66 wrecker by not blowing out the plug holes with air before pulling the plugs, something fell in, dirt or a small rock, screwed up the piston. Where in Ca. do you live? Someone ought to be able to help you out, points are a fairly quick install.
