hey guys i just got an 84 toyota pickup. i got it extremly cheap so it doesnt run very well. one of my buddies has an 87 chevy 305 v-8 he says he'll give me for fifty bucks. is it possible to put that engine in my truck and how much would it cost??? he says he can also get me a 4 speed transmission to go with it because i dont think that motor will work with my transmission but i dont know. any opinoins????

Thanks for any advice

Check with Advance Adapters, if there are parts for swapping a 305 into a Toy, they'll have them. They have the stuff for 3.8, 4.3, and 350 swaps, don't know offhand about the 305.

All smallblock chevys have the same block so it should be exactly the same as the 350
I know what you're saying by "the same block" but for noobs reading this it might be better to say "same block outer dimensions" as the blocks are internally different. The 4.3 V6 will also bolt in in place of a small block (or big block, for that matter).

Ultimately, if cost is a big deal, just stick with the 22R and get it running well. They aren't that bad if built properly.
