Engine number found. There was an old paper wrap wrapped at iron wire. In the paper, 000567, what does that mean? Is there something special when I disconnect distributor?

No idea on the number found on the paper tag.

Nothing special to remove the distributor/ignitor.
Although a few people here have found their distributors difficult to pull out of the aluminum timing cover, due to corrosion between dissimilar metals.

The engine serial number on yours is:
230 M3 011575
That is decoded as follows:

230-----Cubic inch
M-------Military
3-------Year, 1 is 1966, 2 is 67, 3 is 68, 4 is 69
01------Month, in your case January
15------Day, in your case the fifteenth day of January
75------Compression ratio, 7.5:1
