I've had the same problem with my 22r.
I just put silicone gasket ( the stuff you get in the tube for automotive) on top of the o-ring.
It added an extra seal plus also hold the o-ring in place when putting the oil pump back on.
Never had a problem with the oil pump after that.

Double check all your grounds, it's funny what a bad ground can do.

You would need to study the wiring diagram to answer your final question.

The temp sensor of a basic pre-computerised temp gauge mostly just has a single wire and when a gauge doesn't work it can be tested by grounding that wire which then should result in a full scale reading from the gauge. If it doesn't the supply, gauge or wiring is at fault.
If there is a full scale indication the sensor could be faulty or perhaps the engine is too cool.

When electronic engine management came along the temp gauge was increasingly driven by the computer from the main sensor and the single wire type was deleted.

Look to see if there are any fuse links in the system. A poor connection in the harness can cause the problem.

I don't think the igniter is the problem, it could be a bad pickup coil in the distributor, it sends an rpm signal to the computer, if this signal is lost it won't start. Did you check for diagnostic codes using a jumper wire in the check connector? Are there any diagnostic codes? Is this carbureted or EFI?

with a correctly fitted clutch kit , there is no necessity to change pedal height or anything else

Simply press your left foot on the clutch pedal, and move the stick shift to the desired gear. When doing so, please go off the gas pedal with your right foot.

Sounds like the cylinder head gasket could be blown. Does it sound funny when your trying to start or crank the engine?

if too rich adjust choke leaner
if too lean, adjust choke righer.

from 1920 to about 1988 , usa, 70 years we did this.
no more. well we do, but most dont now.
i still have 1 twin carb motor cycle and one single carb VW 1968.
both restored.
also the chock heater must work and the choke spring not old.
the old bi-metal spring that is old become lazy,/crazy. kick it to the curb for best experiences.
if water heated choke the water actually must flow here.
if not, it will fail.
there are 3 common types.
electric, needs 12v.
water, needs 180F hot water actual flow.
and exhaust choke stove heater. (a small horror this, dont ask)
there are others, but would need carb name and p/n
