The lobe on the camshaft shouldn't make that much of a problem, but from the sounds of it the fuel pushrod is what is giving you fits. The rod has to be pushed up and the fuel pump arm put under it to bolt down properly. Use a small diameter pushrod or stiff wire to hold it up to get the arm in under it.

When inserting the pump, it's a down and in motion.  I've even done it without removing the plug.

I had to do a little looking to make sure there was a fuel pump rod to deal with, I usually use electric fuel pumps to free up the extra hp and relieve the stress on the engine. No thanks is needed, made me do a refresher on my own, so thank you.

Sure you can call me Ed.
 
There are several pumps out there that work well, Holley, Carter, both are good 4-7psi pumps for carbs, and the best thing to do is mount it near the fuel tank, not near the carburetor, underhood. Pumps are usually best pushing, not pulling, and with these two pumps I have never had a need for a regulator. The little Airtech (sp) pumps are not very good, they tend to be inexpensive but like to allow vapor lock. Mounting can be above the third member or near the rear right wheel on the framerail, and put a quarter inch thick piece of rubber to isolate it so it doesn't vibrate.

They usually don't come with cover plates, but you can buy them.  Summit has them

Believe it or not, I think the small block Chevy cover works.

Oddly, the brake lines have been serviced, so they look ok. They should be good until I go to convert to disks in front... which will be down the road a piece.
 What is of greater concern, as far as lines go, are the trans cooler lines, that go to the bottom of the radiator. They don't look good at all, so those should be done pretty soon. Inline Tube doesn't seem to have specific Dodge Polara/Monaco trans cooler lines for '69-'70, but they do show them for the '69-'70 Chrysler Newport/New Yorker/300... I presume they would would be the same, since it's the same transmission... no?schaefman2011-07-09 21:16:13

Also, you'll be changing the front hoses when you do the conversion, but everyone over looks the rear hose.  Hint Hint.  LOL  Looks can be deceiving
