If you have any stalling it will be from the blaster II coil they should be mounted vertical if it's oil filled due to over heating when there laying horizontal.

Going for that kinda beat up and rusty look. Its difficult to get Ford engine blue on wires and hoses strategically without getting it on the actual motor.

What is that bracket riveted to the top-center of the firewall?

It's to help align or keep the hood centered when you close it. I'm not 100%, but I'm pretty sure it's a 78/79 thing. My 78 Bronco has it and my 75/77 trucks do not. The hood has a matching piece that slides into that bracket on the firewall liiiiike a glove when you close the hood. I actually went a drilled out a set from another 78 Bronco for another FTE member, but apparently it wasn't needed by the time I got it, so I have it sitting in a box. I imagine you could rivet or bolt in the firewall bracket and then the hood piece actually has it's own fasteners that go through a hole already in the hood. My 75 and 77 have the holes in their hoods that would accept it. Does it make it fit better or not jiggle around as much? I don't really know, but it's there!

Not just a '78/'79 thing, but a specific truck thing too. I saw them mostly on Broncos and F150's back in the day, but not as much on the 250/350 trucks.
My '79 F350 did not come with one, and I remember after buying it I thought I would go hunt one down like you did 75BigBlock. Never did get roundtoit though.
