Been reading your story here. I have been wondering how many 63 4 speed cars are still out there and on the road. We just purchased an original, rust free survivor 4 speed out of California that was recovered by Sierra Auto Restoration that had been in storage for 33 years: & I managed to sweet talk them into selling it to me as is. Anyway: will be watching your progress and I will start a thread for ours too. Keep me posted on the throw out bearings please: have not tried to investigate that yet. Also, do you have any tips on how to remove the distributor off the chain cover?
