    That's where the oil pressure switch goes. Looks like he had plumbed it to provide top end oil, like for a shovel top end.

    Well, hell, if that's the case (pun intended) all panman needs is a mid '50s sprocket shaft.

    You need to start over. The CV is dead simple and should run OK with almost any combination of stock jets. (Not run well, but crank, idle, and go down the road.) Your idle mixture screw should be 2...

    I believe the 56T flywheels are for the '56 - '71 sprocket shaft taper, which is 8 1/2 degrees, instead of the 6 degrees that you need.

    That shaft, the straight 1" shaft for knucks and early pans, has a different taper on each end, one for the flywheel and one for the sprocket. The longer taper is for the flywheel, if I'm remembering...

    Start with three threads exposed above the nuts. Adjust so the pressure plate lifts evenly.
    You need to adjust your mousetrap spring after you get the pressure plate where you want it.

    In addition to the above, check that the choke cable is allowing the enrichener plunger to fully seat.

    A slide diaphragm with a hole in it, no matter how small, will make a CV run bad.

    That is going to be tough to do. You should consider replacing the entire valve spring kit, there may be more fatigue/damage than you have noticed. There were so many kits offered at one time that...

    Yes, you need a 5 ohm coil to run with points. If you use the original 3 ohm coil, it pulls too much current and will burn the points up in short order
