    I don't know if the rockers, or the pushrods, but everything outside the block will bolt on except the harmonic balancer and flywheel/flexplate

    The push rods and the rockers are the same for all standard small bock chevys (262-400). The only difference between a 305 and a 350 is the bore size. The 305 has a bore size of just 3.736 inches, and the 350 has a bore size of 4 inches. The stroke is the same, the rod-journal diameter is the same, as well as the main-journal diameter. So everything else should work.
    If I need corrected anyone, please do so, heh.
    Good luck with your swap!

    everything will bolt up internally and externally,don't use the harmonic balancer or the flywheel from the 305,the heads will also interchange.and the intake.and will also bolt right up to your exhaust system.and motor mounts.
