Please try to re-explain.

If you are talking about a location bolt, then you may have to cut the bolt head or nut off with either a saw, or by using heat.

It is improbable that it is the float, more likely the wiper that is connected to the float, or the resistance windings/circuit that the wiper runs across. Access to this is on the top of the fuel tank. The gauge could also be faulty or there could be a bad connection on the panel PC board behind the dash.

I don't have a diagram for the circuits from the starter solenoid.
I might be able to dig one up if necessary.
There should be a large fuseable link from the solenoid to the key switch. I would check the fuseable links at the solenoid first.
Let me know if you need more info on the circuits.

solenoid may be sticking. Have someone start the car, if it sticks tap the solenoid with screw driver handle. If that stops the starter, replace the solenoid. If it were me, I wouldn't bother testing it and just replace solenoid.

You would be much better off finding another 5.0L engine. It's a big can of worms to swap in a different engine, and not just for the reasons you mentioned. There is the engine wiring harness, the computer, many connections and placement fittings you would have to contend with. Check if the Crown Vic even had the 5.8L as an option. If so, it may be possible with minor modifications, but may be very time-consuming, whereas another 5.0L is just a straight swap-much easier. Whatever you decide, good luck.
By the way, I'm not sure your fluid-draining storage idea is very advisable. Many seals (like in the coolant system) could get dry and crack and cause a leak when filled and ran again. An old mechanic once told me never leave the coolant system dry-it leads to rust, scale and corrosion, and dried seals. He even kept his engines that were removed and.stored on the floor topped up with anti-freeze- said he never had a problem with corrosion build-up or dried seals.

The smaller battery could be over charging unless picked up by the voltage regulator, and heat is a slow killer. Cars require different amps to start. The main thing to look at is the Cold Cranking Amps. Which is the amps being put out at 0F or -18c. As for the antifreeze it wouldnt hurt to test is for freezing point and boiling point which are majour factors. The worst could be antifreeze in the oil.
