Oh I see now. You said 305 not 350. Very similar to the 350, just under powered. My comments about understanding why you'd want to do this still stand.

What kind of transmission do you have and are you keeping it, or going with a Chevy tranny? 2WD or 4WD?

If it's a 2WD, the easiest way is probably to get a chevy tranny to mate up to the 305 and make your own mounts. If you don't want to make your own mounts, they make cradle mounts for SBCs or mounts that go between your waterpump and block. You can check JC Whitney for those. (I recommend the cradle mounts)
