I have general knowledge of rebuilding engines but it has been a while since I've done it and just don't want to mess something up by doing something stupid or missing a step.

I was just wondering if someone could direct me to a book or guide for rebuilding a 1996 EFI 460. I have seen the recommendations for Tom Monroe's book several times but have also read that it isn't a very up to date book (i.e. mainly for rebuilding older engines). Would you still recommend this for an EFI engine?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Yes the Tom Monroe book is a very good resource even for the later model motors. :)

I don't know of any books specifically for the later model 460s. The Tom Monroe book is a lot of good reading, but it does lack important info relating to any engines after they were externally balanced...1979 I believe. It is those little things that will get you, such as the hatchet spacer, flexplate, flywheel, head, intake and exhaust differences... and those front covers that don't have a dipstick tube/fuel pump provision, just to name some that I have come across. I would recommend getting a good shop manual for torque specs, as I can imagine that there could be some minor differences there over the years also.
