There are a couple of possibilities. The brake lights only operate when the ignition is switched on. If that is not the solution then I suggest that you may have dislodged a connector when changing the brake components you mention. I have never had this problem and until I get my service manual back from the local garage I cannot tell you where to look for the pressure switch. It should be close to the master brake cylinder.

The manual handbrake is cable operated. If it has been adusted regularly during the 30 years of operation, it will probably not have any adjustment capability left. The adjustment is by use of an adjustment screw that you will see under the car. My car is a 1983 Jaguar and it has this problem. I am unable to obtain a replacement cable at present and am considering getting my mechanic to shorten the existing cable. I rely on the transmission parking lock to hold the car when parked.

It needs to be grounded to some metal part on the car. If the mount is rusted or broken you can drill a hole on the horn its self and attach a wire to it using a metal screw then attach the other end to something metal on the car.

It could be the reverse brake band. If you get a Haynes manual for this model, it will tell you where and how to adjust the bands.
Hope this helps

There should be a notch cut into the distributor body to mark #1. If you can't find it then turn the engine over until your timing marks are lined up.You will need to lift the valve cover to check that as you move past the timing mark or TDC that the exhaust valve starts to open. If not then rotate the engine 180 Degrees and try again.

Welcome to Fixya

Check the battery cables to make sure the hookups are not corroded. Corrosion can put a damper of the flow of electrical current and can be the entire problem. Check all terminals if they are both intact and not loose. A simple way to tell if the battery is at fault is to turn the headlights on and turn the ignition switch to start. If the lights go out, then the battery is probably at fault.
If everything looks okay, the problem may be the solenoid. The solenoid is essentially a switch that turns the starter on and off. When your car is just sitting off in the driveway, the solenoid is receiving a current from the battery, but it does not pass it on to the starter. When you flip the ignition, a small current signals the solenoid to let the current through to the starter. The starter then turns over. When you have a solenoid that is going bad, the switch can get tweaked and not let the current through correctly. Since the electrical current isn't enough to fire up the starter, the engine doesn't fire. In some cars, it just makes a click noise. Thank you for using Fixya!

You would need to find out if the system has been converted to R134 or if it is still using R12.
If R12 you would need to have a licensed tech do it, or have someone convert it to R134.
