Why not just order an Owner's Manual? All the resto parts houses have them. If you really want to understand your car and be prepared to work on it, order an Assembly Manual and a Shop Manual too.

Any auto parts house should have the books that will tell you what is needed. In fact, just go to WalMart and look it up.

Regular Chevy stuff. Back in '78 I was still a parts monkey. Could've quoted you the numbers chapter & verse (if you can use Canadian Tire #'s that is...)

Each brand (Fram, ACDelco, etc.) has its own parts numbers. Just go to the local parts store and you'll see a big book hanging in front of the racks of filters. It'll have all the numbers you need.

Plug gap: .045
Motor oil: depends on your engine's condition and local climate...

GM would haved used 10-30 oil,filter would have been a AC PF25 but you can use the PF35 ( it's just a bit longer,was used on light duty trucks ),trans fluid would would have been Dextron II.Thats all I can tell you.Luck
