How much oil do you have in the crankcase? I sure hear a LOT of valve chatter! LOL Congrats on getting it running and I hope you get it unstuck soon.

IIRC, all of the big block Mopars pretty much took the same filter. Here's a Purolator listing that I pulled up. I'm sure you'd be fine with one of these. I used a 67 Dodge Monaco with a 383 for reference. If you look up a Chrysler or Plymouth with a 383 or 440 from the same era, you'll see they all take the same filter. PL30001

It's not unusual to hear valve clatter on an engine which has been parked for many, many years. Some of the lifters will have collapsed and it will take quite a bit of time for them to pump back up. Just don't rev it up until the noise goes away and it should be fine.

Besides the fan/alternator belt being a little loose, the way the wiring is, good chance there are wires grounding out and draining the battery extra fast, so be aware of bare wire ends that could ruin your day on the way to your garage.
Fram, a rather common filter, is PH8A, like them or not.

Sinking is the wrong term. They are hydraulic lifters meaning that there is an inner and outer member and oil is trapped between them and the inner member is pushed out by the oil taking up any slack in the valve train. When an engine is not used for a long time, the valve spring pressure on the open valves pushes that oil out leaving excess slack in the system. It takes a while to refill the lifters so the valve train noise is very loud until they refill (usually 5 to 15 minutes) and excess RPM can damage the lifter or cam surface during that time.

Was never an issue until hydraulic lifters came into use. While some date back earlier, it was the 50's and 60's that saw them increase in popularity.

Maybe you should get a gas mask just in case you start driving it around your property!
