Those sure do look familiar.  How about e-brake cables.   I saw no front end parts at all on your list.

Make sure you get a good HEI module, many of the aftermarket one are pure junk (I've seen them bad right out of the box). I would suggest either a new GM one, or maybe a used Wells one (made in USA) if you can find one. I haven't tried any of the performance modules yet (accel, msd, dui, etc) but one of those may be an option too.

Hey umm. I don't have a pcv port on this carb. Would a Trans-Dapt 2266 work instead of the 2086? While I'm at it... How do you remove the ball from the linkage? I don't really want to break it.
 Never mind. Just blind. Probably need new glasses.

gotta love that silicone.  i believe that there should be a back round check required for it and if your are the select few that have used it in place of a head gasket then you should not be able to ever be caught holding the stuff (i have bought at least half a dozen cars with silicone head gaskets) none of those engines ever ran and where scraped

VC's are just not fun.  All kinds of stuff has to be moved, when possible, to accommodate that task.

Biggest problems were AC lines and Coolant lines. Before I started I did a smog/pulse air delete

Yeah, those hoses are in the way.  I lucked out in that my AC hose seems longer than most of the others I have seen so I was able to keep it moved out of the way.  I disconnected the offending heater hose.

My ac hose and the back bolt were my biggest headaches - at least that I didn't cause.

I drilled out a broken vc bolt. The one in the front though. It was simple.
