305 in a 3/4 ton Burban
Here's the scenario...
1987 3/4 ton Suburban 4x4 (free), previous owner's kid ran the 6.2L Diesel engine out of engine oil while on the highway. I am examining the possibility of rebuilding the 6.2 because of its torque and fuel economy, but it's going to take a while for all the pieces to fall into place before I can reinstall the engine.
I have a pretty fresh 305 rebuild on the stand in the garage that I could swap in temporarily until I get the 6.2L financed and put back together. The 305 is pretty decent but lacks the torque of a 350. I have a radiator and radiator brackets suitable for a SBC (a Diesel radiator doesn't mate well with a SBC gasser)
Should I expect problems? (acceleration, driving up hills, etc)
1987 3/4 ton Burban, TH400/NP208, 3.73 gears, ~31" tires
