5.  Engine mounts: right side mount, Mopar p/n 3817 168, above; left side, 3642 821, below.  Obvious difference, the thin upper edge of 3817 168; and the broad, flat upper edge of 3642 821.

7.  NOS 1978-79 distributor p/n 3874876 purchased online from Old Car Parts NW (ocpnwi@gmail.com). Olsen used it in re-assembling the engine, but then swapped the original back on, in troubleshooting initial rough running.  Nothing was wrong with the original before the rebuild, but I went for the new one as a pre-emptive measure against future failure of the original.  Swapping back the original didn't change the rough running, so there was nothing proved wrong with the new one.

8.  Distributor propped up in a tin can to expose internal parts.

9.  Standard Blue Streak distributor cap and rotor, which were tried on the new distributor, but then swapped out for new Mopar brown cap and rotor that came with the unit from Old Car Parts.

10.  This cover was cleaned and repainted, and reused in a second tune-up done mostly to re-adjust valves, setting them at .010 intake and .020 exhaust.  The adjustment was not done to the valves with the engine running, or could it be at operating temperature.  A third tune-up was done by Dan Juhasz at Accurate Automotive in Cranford, NJ; this time with engine running, and at operating temperature.

14.  This is a new Gates 43205 waterpump which I bought online.  It was not needed because a new pump came in the engine rebuild kit ordered by Charlie Olsen.

19.  6 gauge battery cable, 8 gauge and 14 gauge wire.  Battery terminal connector in use.

20.  Fuel sending unit, correct for '76 Volaré and '77s through March of 1977.  2½-inch diameter cap.  This unit is original to the car; a hole had developed in the float bulb and so it wasn't signaling the fuel gauge.  The hole was resoldered after a NOS sending unit was found and installed in the car in 2010.  Beginning in April 1977, a new unit was being installed in Volaré with a 3-inch cap.  Click on picture to view strainer and bulb, and cap fittings, close up.
