Default Engine rebuilding...

I have a 1968 Mustang coupe with a 289 V8. I was wondering what is the best way to begin to restore the engine with a few modifications.. What type of literature should I get, parts, etc. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

The best idea is a master rebuild kit. It will have all the parts you will need. Next find a good machinist.

Steve Christs how to rebuild small block fords is good beginning material. As far as parts go, you need to have a goal in mind before you start buying stuff.
