      You need a heavy hammer and some sort of drift -- a long bolt would work in a pinch. Drive the rear edge of the key down into its slot, which will make the front of the key lift out of the slot. Then...

      The 140s use a different arrangement. On the Amazon, the valve mounts under the top of the firewall and the screws go pointy end up. I can't speak to the gasket dilemma right now, though.

      Yu can reuse the main cap bolts indefinitely. You can reuse the rod bolts quite a few times, and they're NLA anyway. I've never had a problem with either, having rebuilt a few dozen B18/20 engines,...

      The seals press into the housings without any sort of goop, although some lubricant will help them go in with less pressure (I'd use a smear of liquid dish soap). The trick is to press them in evenly...

      The foot switch is replaced by a step relay, which is toggled by pulling back on the turn signal stalk. The wiring is already there (most of it, at least). I've done that to a number of Amazons.

      I think you're just fine without a booster. It does reduce pedal pressure somewhat, but it has no impact on braking distance if everything else is in good shape.

      1-7/16" socket. There was a service bulletin at some point that changed the torque spec from ~100 foot pounds to 75 with blue Loc-Tite that didn't make it into the common shop manuals.
