1997 Lincoln Town Car

In October of 2014 my back left whell feel off due to loose wheel nuts. This has also happened a second time a couple months later but I can assure you that the wheel nuts were very tight. I lifted the car andhad the back wheels spinning at around 35 miles per hour you could see it wiggle and when brakinth the wiggle worse. I put a spare tire on it to see if the rim was damaged but I got the same results. during both of the incidents I was traveling at around 35 to 40 miles an hour and fell on the rotor which has also been replaced along with the brake pads. I want to diagnose this as a rear axle?

I am working on replacing the fuel pump however I have a damaged elbow connector on the white connection (where fuel line connects to pump assembly). I can’t find the exact name or part number for these and was hopeful someone can point me in the right direction

I have recently swapped the engine in the Lincoln (with same) and got it to fire up about 4-5 times. I couldn’t let the car run too long due to a cooling fan degas issue and not wanting to fry the impeller of the cooling fan. After fixing the degas problem I went to jump the car again and it would crank but not start. Lights good and bright, plenary of power to crank over. I checked the fuel pressure via pressing the nipple on the fuel line rail with no pressure being released.
Question: since car was starting and running (for about 30 secs to a min ea time) could this be fuel related and the engine just used remaining fuel in the line before not starting and no pressure in the rail line? Checked fuse 17 in trunk (fuel pump relay fuse)

I have to replace the coolant resevoir. It looks like the best way is to remove the brake booster first. Is there anything special I need to know about removing the brake booster?
