Ok, there is a one bolt that holds in the disributor. it will be conected to a crows foot looking clamp. Take the bolt out and on Fords it more of a pain then just Chevy's. Chevy's just twist out while pulling. Fords are the same . but to put it back in you have to bump the motor until it falls in. Kind of a pain to set timming. But usually you hold it where the #1 spark plug is and it will fall into place. It's a two man operation.

According to my Chilton's Auto Repair Manual : The 351 Cleveland engine has single points and the 351 CJ engine has dual points in 1973
Kit available at auto parts w/instructions
Nothing, they are there for show.....Just cut them off.
#1 on the distributor cap of a Dodge 360 faces to the front - inline with the center of the engine ( according to the picture in my Chilton repair manual )
It depends on which distributor and transmission you have. The stock distributor has one vacuum line going to it. An autostick transmission has one line. If you have a manual transmission and a Bosch 009 distributor like most people do, you have no vacuum lines.
in 1970-1973 ford introduced the 4 barral carb 351 Cleveland with a horsepower rating of 300
what maniofold are you asking about? intake or exhaust, and what kind of engine do you have?
Standing in the front of the engine, It will be on the right back side of the distributor. It will have an electric wire pluged into the top of it and it will screew into the engine block.
No need to if the distributor was not moved.

The marked # 1 position on the distributor cap faces to the rear and slightly towards the drivers side ( kind of pointing at the # 7 engine cylinder )
AnswerCheck the distributor and the hei coil.In 1973 you would not have an HEI coil. Just the coil itself. Check to make sure all the wires to the coil, including the plug wire is tight and secure. You can pull the distributor wire from the coil.....leaving a small amount of space between it and the coil, turn over the engine. See if there is a spark jumping from the coil to the wire. If so, the problem is in the distributor. Points and condensor, rotor, etc.
1 CHECK IF FUEL IS BEING PUMPED TO THE CARB. REMOVE THE DISTRIBUTOR CAP CHECK CP AND ROTOR. CRANK ENGINE WITH CAP REMOVED AND SEE IF THE ROTOR IS TURNING. IF NOT. THE TIMING CHAIN IS BAG PURCHASE A SPARK PLUG. REMOVE ANY PLUG WIRE. CONNECT TO TH ENEW PLUG HOLD PLUG ENG TO A GROUND SOURCE, MANIFOLED ET. CRANK ENGINE AND SEE IF THERE IS SPARK. IF THERE IS NO SPARK, THERE COULD BE A BAD COIL, OR BAD DISTRIBUTOR

I would bet no, it did not. The 1973 Oldsmobile engine was painted gold and the Pontiac engine was not.
To change the thermostat on a 1973 Ford Mustang with a 302 engine, drain the radiator. Locate the thermostat under the upper hose assembly and remove the required bolts. Place the new part in position and replace the hose assembly before filling the radiator.
Yes it is possible remove the tranny and engine at the same time. I have done it with a 74 and a big block and tranny
