I was in a wrecking yard yesterday and saw an engine in a pile that looked like a 305 V6 (I'm from Canada, we never had those here in our pickups, so I know only a little bit about them).

Anyway, the cast iron starter nose on it looked very much like the starter nose the passenger cars with the bigger flywheel used (on 4 speed applications) as well as what the pickups used in the late 60's. Does anyone know if that is actually the same nose? It uses two identical length vertical bolts about 3 5/8" long if I remember correctly.

I have worked on a lot of old 305-351 years ago. If I remember correctly they were two bolt that ran horizontally. These were all in grain trucks. The pickups may have been different.

Well I was wondering. After I posted this I tried looking up a starter and I found what you described. This engine was upside down in a pile but the valve covers sure looked like the 305 valve cover and the starter was a Delco. At first I thought I'd found one on a 350 or something, and then once I started looking at the engine saw that's not what I was looking at.
