    No manual 2nd gear.

    If that band had no clutch left it was probably set up too tight , drug the clutch off , over heated and cracked that drum .

    AC Not Working

    Just getting the parts might be an issue. I'd start collecting them up now and see where you are. If you wait until spring some of the unobtainium might rear it's ugly head. If it has been open you might figure on a new compressor. They don't like the open air.

    Right Blinker Issue

    Something must be back feeding em. I'd look for some corrosion in those circuits. Hard to diagnose electrical especially over the interwebz. A meter or test light is your friend.

    Rear Brake Wheel Cylinder Retainer Clip

    Backing plate might have some rust that made it thinner. Possibly a new backing plate or some kind of shim or washer in the old one to tighten her up a bit.

    Right Blinker Issue

    I'd have to say you need to pull that h/l switch and clean and regrease it with some good non conductive stuff. If that doesn't work a new switch might be in order. I got the last one I used off eBay.

    Long cranking times. Fuel pump primes but not get power when cranking.

    Not sure if the op understands this isn't a "new" vehicle that you "bump" the keep and it busts off. Or if there really is a problem as the ecm generally needs a revolution or two to get it's crank signal established then looks for the other signals.

    ATR Sway Bar question

    not from my experience but from others, one must use locktite or some type of non loosening type fasteners or they come loose over time. I guess the twist on the unit puts stress one the fastener and results in the loosening over time.

    No manual 2nd gear.

    Doesn't sound like you have been dealing with gurus. Does sound like you have a problem. Might have to step up your game, pull that trans and send it to someone who does these transmissions and is actually good at it.

    Did this place shut down?

    We a We are jerks. No hugging circle that I know of. Just a bunch of guys who have been around the block enough times and get tired of the same questions. But I guess if the individual knew the answer, they wouldn't ask the question.

    No manual 2nd gear.

    No telling what happened to your trans when someone got in there. Be happy if you still have your brf components. I'd be taking it to whoever did this "overhaul" kit and ask why it is doing what you don't like . Or you can do some learning and take some trans fluid baths and do some new vb...

    ARP engine studs

    Seems like a lot to pull the engine for a hg. Especially if you are wanting to drive it anytime soon. If you can't find studs I'd just do bolts and keep moving forward. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/buick,1987,regal,3.8l+231cid+v6+turbocharged,1020957,engine,cylinder+head+bolt,5308

    catalytic converter

    Dumping fuel into a converter isn't good for its longevity, and just installing a cat doesn't solve a poor tune or other issues. What does your O2 look like when idling? is it cycling up and down? You could have a worn out O2 sensor.

    Cranks but won’t start?

    How do you know it is a no spark condition? Did you pull a plug and it wasn't sparking when attached to plug wire with the plug grounded and the car was spun over? Has the coil been replaced with a known good unit? What brand coil module was the replacement?

    catalytic converter

    https://www.turbotweakstore.com/help_answer.asp?ID=17#46 Not sure how you are trying to contact them but it is a holiday weekend. I would give it a few more days and retry. Not sure which chip you are using but some of the offerings have the ability to adjust the fuel and spark advance. Might...
