Looking for some instructions on how to change the passenger side low beam on a '74 Lesabre. I'm thinking this should be pretty straight forward, but would love to find something that identifies the exact part needed and describes the process.

Pretty straight forward, remove chrome outside bezel cover 4 screws, light will be exposed and then remove the 3 screws holding on the light trim ring. Light has a single plug socket on the back of the light, once removed you will see alignment slots in the base for the light, reverse process to install. Depending on access the plug may be removed from the engine bay side. Check socket and wiring harness for corrosion or breaks before installing.

Thanks for the step-by-step.
I suspect changing out the exhaust header gaskets will be a bit more involved :)

Those require time, patience and skill. Even then there is a possibility of snapping off a bolt due to age and having to drill out and retap the hole. Not saying that it happens on every one just that there is no way of knowing until it's tried.
