You are correct, Chuck.  OE design has the VR next to the washer fluid bottle. and driver side headlamp.

Finger nail polish works great, even comes with brush.

When removing bows:
1. Label bows front-to-back in keeping order of OE install.
2. Mark each hole bow is installed, both sides, as they can be different per side for the same bow.
3. Stock frig with adult refreshment before the job and check refreshment temperature after finishing ensuring frig is doing its job.

Yes, the holes have to be large enough for an assembled clip install.
I bought a couple flea market 9/16 box end wrenches and heated and bent them to fit into hole and place box end over nut to hold.
You will need two different lengths of bending, but worked great for removing/installing bolts.
Coat threads with anti-seize for later in life usage.

Apparently, my mistake on GM (Chev) engines). Some manf's are a blind hole for releasing air when driving dowel in place.

Certainly the person is going to check the hole configuration for a relief flat needed or not.
Put dowel pins in freezer for easier insertion.

Let me get the next round of ice cream.

I always used steel shim gaskets and I would prepare the head surface and block deck with a new honing stone and WD40 to lube.
Remove dowel pins and hone away until surface scratches are gone all most a mirror finish - very smooooth.
Then file a flat on dowel pins the length as this action lets air escape when installing pin.
Honing stone is the same stone used to sharpen/hone your pocket knife, use the light colored side.
Wipe off WD40 on all surfaces and cylinder bores.

As suggested, use washers  as spacers between the T/conv & plate.

Yes, Thank you, Kurt, for this insight.

Originality / Re: Correct size T bolts for leaf springs
« on: June 03, 2020, 12:01:07 AM »
I believe the T-bolts are the same length for both mono- & multi-leaf springs because the bottom spring plate meets with the welded spring perch on axle tube.
The plate/perch squeeze the pads and spring for fit.
 I suggest using the OE bolts you have and slightly coat the threads with anti-seize and enjoy the ride.
Check nut every ten miles(?) until your confident they will remain tight, or are tight.

Yes, buy a HF meter, very cheap and useful. Suggestions given are good.
You will notice in the trunk, bottom of the structure holding the latch, a tan wire.
This wire goes to the sending unit.
Disconnect the connector and measure in refence to ground, black lead, and red lead onto wire through floor, and read s/unit ohms.
Anything between 0-90 ohms, 0 = empty, 90 = full.
You can also get a resistor, 45-50 ohm, and attach one lead to ground, the resistor lead to tan wire into body, and gauge should read approximately half full/empty.
Tank capacity is 16 gallons.  Good luck.
