unfortunatly, as mentioned in one of the replies posted to you earlier, your engine is just not going to operate without these sensors.my advice to you after just completing an 85 TPI engine fit into my model A is to seek out an after market computer & harness package, this will provide you with a computer that is far quicker than the arcaic version you currently hold and they usally come with an hp chip installed off the shelf.
to cut down on engine bay clutter ask for a speed density system to suit your TPI manifold, this will do away with that dammed ugly airflow meter.
on the down side, you will have to purchase new o2/MAP & knock sensors to suit the later model computer (which are probably a wise investment anyway) & your 350 block may not have a divet for the knock sensor to screw into ( drivers side central in the block ).
hope this has been of some help, any other questions feel free to email.
