clean it well, use ultra black high temp silicone gasket maker.

xxxxx

2.oil sending unit hookup where does the wire run from and what should the reading on said wire wire be running (pictures would be lovely)

There is a 3 wire harness from the firewall, 1 = tremp sender, 1 = coil, last 1 = oil temp sender, it might be white.

xxxxx


3.whats the appropriate amount to tighten the e-brake cable?

i tighten until handle pulls out almost 2/3rd of the way so brakes don't drag.


xxxxx


4.cigarette lighter instalation advice

reacch under dash, pull wire off orig, unthread off. it sometimes requires a nudge with pliers.


xxxxx


5.how do i find the leak in my powersteering i blieve it to be coming from the rack but im not sure any advice?

there is no rack, spray brake cleaner on the rubber boot of the cast iron control valve then remove original metal band on rubber boot on ram, pull boot back exposing shaft, brake clean inside of boot and seal in ram, start it up, turn wheel several times then look for leaks.

Depends on the cause. If it's the dipstick, then replace it. If it's the cover, then JB Weld it.

2.oil sending unit hookup where does the wire run from and what should the reading on said wire wire be running (pictures would be lovely)

IIRC, wire comes from harness on the driver's side apron. The signal voltage comes through the gauge from the IVR and is a pulsing voltage. If you ground the wire the gauge should sweep to full. The sender, itself, should be around 0 ohms with engine off, and resistance increases as pressure increases to a max of around 73 ohms.

3.whats the appropriate amount to tighten the e-brake cable?

After you've properly adjusted the brake shoes at each rear wheel, you want to adjust the parking brake so that it will hold the car from moving forward or backward when the handle is about 1/2 way out.

4.cigarette lighter instalation advice

Lighter is a 2-piece affair with the socket inserted from the front of the dash and the outside housing from the back. Lighter feed comes from the fuse panel on the same circuit that feeds the hazard flashers, IIRC.

5.how do i find the leak in my powersteering i blieve it to be coming from the rack but im not sure any advice?

Unless you put in a rack & pinion, there is no steering rack, just a box, and an external assist "ram" unit. To trace leaks I always clean up the area thoroughly and use a fluorescing additive in the fluid that reacts to a blacklight. You can get it at NAPA.
