I think it would help to give a little more info, like what car and what tranny and if you have or will be installing headers.

There is no need for ARP fasteners, get the engine, see what it has to have, and go from there. I would spring for new oil/filter, antifreeze, plugs, cap & rotor. Save the bling for when you have more cash.

I agree ARP fasteners are not needed here, stock stuff will do you just fine. Get it back together running and then worry about upgrades. It would need to be a complete high hp rebuild before you need to get ARP stuff for it.

dip stick tube on the same side and exhaust manifolds style wil be the only real thing ot worry about

dpeends on the year in it now and what year engine you have for it

79 was last year then they moved the stick to the other side..

for example if you got an '80-up model with the smogger manifolds that are above the spark plugs then the 79 older engine dipstick tube will not work becuase it is right in the driver side back where the outlet of the manifold needs to go

so you have to watch for this issue

ive run into this issue a few times over the years

Make sure you support the transmission with a jack or something before you pull the engine away. I like to put a jack stand under them if there is room. It will save you a lot of trouble with alignment when installing the new engine. Try to have the transmission as high as possible.
