Product Description


We were glad to see a revised version come across our desk recently, now with full-color printing. Not only does the color printing make the book more interesting to read, but also from a technical aspect it actually helps when looking at inspection and detail photos within the book. --Modified Mustangs & Fords, April 2009....This detailed, heavily illustrated manual is ideal for the master mechanic or the beginner intent on keeping his Ford running as new. -- --Route 66 Chronicles blob, reviewed by Jim Hinckley, November 2010

Not just a generic rebuild edition, this book is a complete reference that goes into a lot of detail on every step involved in rebuilding a Ford-engine correctly. - --Linechaser, May 2006

THIS George Reid book covers all the Ford small-blocks from the 221 to the 400M, although it is loosely based on a rebuild of a 289 out of a 65 Mustang. There are of course photos illustrating all the engine combos, as we are taken from the early planning stages, though disassembly, parts selection, machining work, reassembly and finally breaking in and tuning. There is also some good information on engine math and all the other technical data you will need for your project. The book is definitely worth reading if you re planning a rebuild, or are just curious as to what this would entail --Round-Up, January, 2014

How to Rebuild the Small Block Ford-Color Edition (SA Design) 4 Nov. 2009
By Dr-K - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this book is informative and useful to someone that has limited experience rebuilding engines. It provides usefule information on tear down and rebuild.

Caution: it is almost word for word, picture for picture identical to George Reid's "How to Rebuild 4.6-/5.4-Liter Ford Engines (S-a Design, Workbench Series)". Purchase one or the other, but not both as I unfortunately did.

Not nearly enough information 21 Feb. 2011
By TM Warren - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've built engines before, but never a Ford, so I bought this hoping for more Ford-specific information. Unfortunately, it spent too much time talking about the machine-shop stage and none on pre-assembly. Furthermore, there were only a handful of torque specs, and no note of the firing order for different engines. I spent more time looking things up on the Internet than referencing this book. It served as a high-level guide to the general assembly process, but it's a poor how-to for the DIYer.

Lots of info 27 Sept. 2010
By David J. Martin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not as detailed as id expected but its a must have either way. Perfect for newbies like me. Doing my first engine build and this is valuable. I just wish there was more detail. Too much time spent in the machine shop, not enough on assembly.

Doing your first engine build as me? Youll need more than just this.

Help for the Do-It-Yourselfer 20 Jun. 2009
By David R. Reynolds - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book gives the rebuilder all the critical information that is needed to perform a successful overhaul of a small block Ford engine. The text is clearly written and there are many color photos to illustrate the proceedures that have to be performed. There are also a number of spec. charts and tables that list critical dimensions and clearences. This book is valuable to both the pro and the newbie.

Great reference Book 25 Feb. 2011
By Chad R Gandy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
No single book is every going to meet everybodys needs. I purchased this book (amongst others) to give me perspective on my engine building project. This is a great book with nice colorful pictures. When building an engine, reading how to do something is not as good as looking at a picture with somebody illustrating the reading. This book has lots of great pictures and information to help you be successful in building an engine and understanding what parts affect performance. This does NOT have technical information like Torque for bolts which you can find in manuals.

I reccomend this book for anybody that is learning how to build engines or learning about how they work.
