Lex, have you used these and did you like them. I found so many different ones on the internet but you can't tell a book by its cover right? I have seen several people reccomend books over the years but have not paid any attention until now when I need one. thanks kris
I have zero experience building an engine but do not have the sense to take it to someone else. Where is the fun in that?
I have Tom's book, along with one titled "Max Performance HP on a Budget" or something like that. I like Tom's better.
I also really like the rebuild video from Boxwrench.net. A very professionally done video that goes through all steps of removal, teardown, reconditioning, rebuild and installation. Check out their website for a sample video clip.
The Tom Monroe book is great. Very detailed, good pictures, plenty of build tips and many torque specs. Mine is an older copy that doesn't cover EFI engines. A newer copy might have been updated to include EFI, if you care.
PM me your mailer. After buying a replacement, I finally found my old copy of Tom Monroe's book. It's a little tattered, & got some water stains now, but it still reads the same. If it doesn't have the info you need, you can spend your $ one one of the others.
I just used the engine chapter of Chiltons 1990 Mustang along with Tom Monroe's book. Monroe is very thorough but for those little changes (and big changes like fuel injection) the Chiltons fills in the blanks. Between these two books I don't think you need anything else.
