The book I learned the most from was Tom Monroe's "How To Rebuild Your Small Block Ford". It was really a wealth of information for a guy attempting his first engine rebuild. This was back in the mid 80's and I let someone borrow it and never saw it again so they must have liked it pretty good too.

That's a good one! It was one of my first Ford books. It's great for someone building their first engine because it walks you through step-by-step.

Also the Mustang Restoration Handbook was very helpful in assembling all the little pieces in the Cougar, i.e rebuilding steering components, brake line routing, etc. I give it 2 Thumbs Up.

You are right! I have that one, too, as a matter of fact, when I was rebuilding a power steering control valve, it had a detail identifying which end of the spool was which that none of the other manuals I had {including the Ford shop manual} showed.

Here a link to that book:

The Tom Monroe book IS very good. I'll be using it to help me rebuild MY smallblock Ford. Thanks M&M Bookstore.

Now if there were some real good books for 67-72 Ford trucks, I'd be all over that too.

I also have the Tom Monroe book, & although it is very informative, it was first published in 1980. It has been reissued, with a different cover, but the content was not updated. I really liked the book for the casting numbers, but nothing after 1980 is mentioned. Other than that, it`s great.

Read a commentary about that book, after it had been out a couple years. The writer stated that some of clearances and torque specs were inaccurate. Any truth to this??
