Dark amber brown grease.
That was the typical color of chassis grease up into the '70s. My guess is that its just a good moisture resisting grease.

We will have to look at a '77 diagram to confirm, but the reverse lights are probably fed from the 'accessory' terminal on the ignition switch.

Battery tray

I think it was Tim Reese who posted about that. IIRC the answer had to do with the engine option.

Joe, Which levers? The ones on the transmission itself? I'll be at the garage today and could look what is on them. Some of the older Chrysler setups there's no grommets.
