ok I need an honest opinion I found a 305 for cheap it was running when taken out of his truck its been sitting for a year and needs an intake and alternator. I need to know if this is a worthwhile find or would because its sitting for a year with no intake if its going to need extensive rebuilding?

I do not know what you mean by cheap, but I would always shy away from used engines that you have not heard run - especially if they have been sitting opened up - you never know what has made its way into the engine.
If the engine was FREE and you run into issues while trying to install it, you will be out more $$ than starting with an engine you KNOW runs fine. If it is free, it still may have some good value depending on what parts it has - especially if it is has a roller cam engine.
yeah thats kinda what I thought... the guy said he wanted a bigger motor in his truck and dropped in a 350 and had it kicking around his garage for the past year and just wants it gone. by cheap I mean $80
