The valves in this car are hydraulic and require no adjustment. If they are noisy then you have a mechanical problem with a worn part or parts.

My saginaw manual transmission locks in gear

This is most likely due to a mis adjusted or worn shifter mechanism. Clean it inspect it replace worn parts, lube and adjust.
Adjustment is done with shifter in neutral, there is an alignment hole thru all the arms and the bracket, adjust the length of the arms until a drill bit will insert thru the hole.

Sounds like the tapping you are hearing are the tapits need tightening, You may need to top the oil up it they are auto ajusting. Your best bet is to talke to your local mechanic and ask how easy it is to adjust the tapits, i'm not sure how much you will need to tighten them on your model of car. I hope this is of some help.

My 1974 ford pickup/F250 3/4 ton loses power and backfires

It sounds like the timing is off but moore likely it's caused by the point gap being to close due to wear on the rubbing block.
The gap of the points effects the timing.
You probably need to clean and adjust the points.
If that doesn't work try replacing the points and if the old one are pitted, replace the condenser also.
If that doen't work check the coil.

Clutch slipping

first i would try adjusting the clutch cable because commonly people with think that they're clutch is going out when really just the cable has gotten stretched....try adjusting that first and if that works then you should be fine for another couple thousand miles but if you want to not have to worry bout it for awhile i would just replace teh clutch assembly....usually ranges from $200 to $450 depending on the clutch set and the mechanic that does the work for you. Let me know what happens. :)
