I'm gathing parts to at least give the engine compartment in my 62 the appearance of being proper. Here's what I'm starting with:
attachment.php


It came with a big chrome Mr. Gasket air cleaner on the carb.

So far, I've collected:

Carter AFB 3269S
Date correct 349 intake manifold
vacuum advance distributor

I know that I'm going to need:

Fuel line from pump to carb including glass filter
manifold to head gaskets
cast iron thermostat housing
upper radiator hose for above housing
proper air cleaner (base, body and element)
choke tube from carb to manifold
clean air hose from manifold to carb
carb heat spacer
carb gaskets
carb mounting studs
carb to air cleaner stud
painted steel valve covers w/appropriate decals
ignition shielding

Am I missing anything major? Or rather do I at least have everything I'll need to swap the manifold/carb/distributor?

Heater hose fitting
Oil Fill tube and cap
Tube of Permatex "Ultra-Copper" RTV (to seal water ports in the side gaskets and to substitute for the front and rear seals in the gasket kit).

How do you put oil in it today? :)

There's an oil fill tube and cap exiting the picture on the right side. I was planning to re-use that. The heater hose fitting is the elbow at lower right in the picture, correct? I'll find the right one and add it to my wish list. The distributor to manifold gasket comes with the manifold to head gaskets.
