I'm looking for books on the engine. 

 

Are we talking rebuild or hot rod?

Rebuild, you need a FSM, or a plain old Haynes will do. Thankfully it's one of the most basic engines ever designed. 

 

As for a good hot rod book, I've never seen one. I'm lucky to have a machinist local to me that has been building hot rod A-series heads for 30+ years so he did mine. I'll ask around and see if anyone knows any good books on it.

Yes, that book is heavy on theory and carries over.

If you doing a rebuild why not build an A14 or an A15?

They can still be found dirt cheap. GreenHill probably has a few 210's.

finding the A series 5 speed is the hard part. British car guy will pay 5 bills for a rebuildable core. The last 2 that i had sold on EBAY for $400 each. It was almost 15 years ago.
