The wires coming from your master cylinder are your brake light switch.

I can't comment about your engine but all the engines I have worked on stick to the same basic rules - each connecting rod and cap is individually finished as a pair so the caps aren't interchangeable.
Most manufacturers engrave or stamp pairing numbers on the rod and the cap to ensure the right cap is returned to the right rod and as these markings are always on the same side it also serves to indicate which way around they are supposed to be fitted.

If there are no such markings most mechanics will make their own identification marks.

Each bearing shell has a locating tab that locates in a recess in the connecting rod and the cap, the purpose of which is to prevent the bearing shells rotating within the housing. I have yet to see an engine where those recesses aren't together on the same side when assembled.

Each bearing shell protrudes a couple of thou from the housing so when the cap is fitted to the rod and the bolts tightened it squeezes the bearing shell by a small amount so it is held securely in the housing - this is called the "bearing knip" and is essential, as is ensuring any oil holes are aligned.

If you have the correct bearings but when tightened they pinch the crankshaft it is possible someone in the past had filed the connecting rod caps to reduce the bearing clearance and get rid of noise without spending any money. Some careful measuring will be needed to decide if that is the trouble and if it is, one or more new rods will be needed or the correct size of shim fabricated and fitted...

Put a new fuse in. The fuse works all 3 items in your vehicle.

Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good. With intermittent issues have to test when problem is ongoing. Use a test lite or digital multimeter and check voltage at fuses in fuse box, some fuses hot all the time, some go hot with the key on. May have to check ignition switch? I'm not saying replace anything. I don't know what testing you have done?

No, the longer length will not cause your problem. The longer wires are simply for the plugs longest from the distributor cap (or coil pack) to the spark plug, and no particular length is critical, just as long as all wires will fit.
Do you mean it ran fine before you changed the wires and plugs? If so, you may have one or two not fully seated at one end or the other. Go back and make sure each wire is pushed in correctly, You should hear or feel the new wire snap over the new spark plug.

have the cooling system pressure tested
indicates a rusted out welsh plug in the head anti freeze and water is mixed in the ratio of 50:50 or 1:1 or 50%
so a gallon of water would require a gallon of anti freeze
That figure is the best to prevent corrosion and freezing of the coolant

Check the oil. The low oil sensor will disable the ignition if more than a quart low.

You might want to put a fuel pressure gauge on it. I'd change the filter too. Check the condition of all rubber vacuum lines. These are notorious for getting brittle.
