Before tearing out the headliner I'd try setting traps for awhile till you don't get anymore in the traps. Maybe liberally spray Febreeze on the headliner for the smell? On stored or infrequent use...

Never seen owners manuals either on the web or in repop form. TSM's yes, owners manuals no. I'd try ebay or put a wanted ad in this forums Classified/wanted section.

Set your ign timing and then recheck it often and see if it's wandering. A common issue on the 230 is timing chain stretch. If yours is toast buy two. They may not be avail the next time you need...

Left side of any motor is from driving view not as viewing from from the grille. So front left side #1 cyl is front "drivers side".

If you're just swapping axles, look for a pre-80 donor. In 80 the differentials moved. Front to drive side, rear to center. 79 and earlier front is pass side and rear is offset to pass side. For a...

Unless the pedal is rock hard, doubt it's the booster. The booster doesn't give you better, more powerful brakes. All it does is make the pedal easier to push.
Seems not necessary on all vehicles...

Only thing I got is when you do the swap use the T18 from the donor 360. Otherwise you'll need to change out the different length input shaft in your 258's T-18.

I can't do any measurements but you're talking "late J-20's" comparing 74 and 76. Those are actually "early J-20s". J-20's didn't come out till 74. 74 and 76 should be identical.
