Window washer cap: Go to the dealer. They're about £2. If you start scrimping on parts like this, it's all going to end horribly, fella.
The wipers should be Bosch and have square section arms. You can buy the whole wiper arms with the blades attached (quite expensive) or you can buy just the rubber blades. Your local dealer. The blades themselves are not hugely more expensive than stuff you get from Auto factors, so it's not worth arsing about. Get the AR blades.
If you bought right-length wiper blades attached to the pivoting "head" (??) frame part, as you can with most other cars, then these won't fit. The '55 doesn't use a seprate wiper frame. It's the whole arm (with integral frame) or just the blades.
The injection light should come on with the ignition then go out after a few seconds, once it's worked out it's working okay.
If your car has an immobilisor (I guess) then you should have a master key that is sort of maroon in colour, as well as the main key. People talk of a "red" key but the main key is often red. The "red" key is actually the maroon one.
You need the maroon key to program any new keys you buy, so I'd really try to find it.
If the car pulls to one side, then you MUST have deranged tracking. How do you know it's "fine"? Take it to a 4-wheel alignment centre and they'll tell you what settings it has for tracking front and rear (and camber too, though that's not adjustable).
In cases of extreme bodgery I've heard of people moving the steering wheel on the shaft to centre the steering wheel. Check yours isn't pointing in the wrong direction. With the wheels properly aligned, the the wheels (road and steering) should be pointing straight ahead.
