After removing bolts, rotate the crankshaft until fuel pump rises to the highest spot on the cam lobe, if you don't, you risk dropping the pushrod/tappet into the crankcase.

Why yes, the ORIGinal CHARGER is a Fastback

And replace all of those related hoses while you're at it.

If it doesn't fit, FORCE it.
If it breaks, well, it needed replacing anyway.
