Older engines have the dipstick on the driver's side. There is a hole in the side of the block between 5 & 7. Newer ones have the dipstick tube in the passenger side of the oil pan.

No. Not without switching the cylinder heads. I think it was 89, Chevy came out with the 1st generation Vortec heads, which require a different intake.

8.5 to 1 compression is factory stock.

check your rotor & pickup coil

Most often, the length is 24 inches. I have seen some that are 27 inches though.

it should go in threw the head on the driver side but some go in threw the block on the passenger side

attach a dwell meter and set the points for 30 degrees.

The front cylinder on the driver's side is #1.

Rpm needs to be set at 800 - 900 .. that is factory setting.

Most any brand will do. In a Fram, it's PH30

the new block has a two piece rear main seal and the oil dipstick is on the passenger side other than that yes reuse the crank and oil pan and everything else is interchangeable

You have to use the flywheel for the 1974 engine and the clutch plate for the Trans Am.

Whether you do it through the valve covers or elsewhere, yes the engine needs positive crankcase ventilation.
