|allansmith859||Ok guys I started it up and pulled the wires from the distributor cap one at a time. nothing changes it still misses. Plugs and wires were bought a month ago. what does this mean|

|allansmith859||My mechanic said it wouldn change anything putting a 305 in this as he has done it before. I dont know Im gonna start it and pull each wire one at a time and see if nothing happens. Maybe one of the wires got damaged during this hole process. I guess what Im being told is to find a ecm from a vehicle with a 305 in it. I dont see how this would make a difference honestly. If anything I dont think it would missfire like this it would just fall on its face at first and then finally take off.|

Pull the plugs and inspect them to see if it's running too rich. Be sure the vacuum lines are correct and everything is holding vacuum, no vac. leaks.
These engines need to be timed in a specific manner, not just turning the distributor while using a timing light like non computer controlled engines are timed.

shouldn't be all that hard to find a 94 truck/van with a 305 to grab the prom and tb

I am using the knock sensor that came on the 305. I take it that its a 305 knock sensor. Also there is nothing wrong with putting a 305 in this. It is far from a performance engine. Beside I am using the roller block that came out of it (350) and going to do something with it cant decide yet. Might put it back in the truck with HEI System. But anyway I got a new knock pigtail and got it plugged in. Dont Know if that knock sensor is good but guess i should get one. Got all my vaccum lines hooked up right, all my plug wires are right, distributor cap is right, got new plugs and wires, and this thing is missing. I said before at idle its fine but i take that back its not. its missing all the time. Keep in mind it wasn like this before. This is why I hate ****in computers. all the money I got in this son of a ***** I coulda just went to hei and got better results, except for gas mileage
Anything else that could make it miss like this. Think it could be the harmonic balance is not right. this is the one I got with it but the block is bored 60 and it looks like a stock balancer. Maybe could try a 350 balancer or maybe Im just thuinking to ****in hard. What ya think guys, Im bout to roll this peice of **** in the lake.

fyi you can't use the 350 knock sensor in the 305..
get one for the 305 cid

I don't think that 25 or 30 pounds oil pressure is anything to worry about at idle...I'd get that knock sensor replaced and if the problem persists look else where. It needs to be replaced regardless.

|allansmith859||Also I forgot to mention at idle my oil pressure is at 25 to 30 but when I hit the gas it goes to about 50. I know that the oil pump is good. I have always seen my oil pressure around 40|
