Which book would you think is the best at giving exact details and explanations for building up a small block? There seems to be a lot of books on the stands on this subject and sense they are not cheep I only want to by one. I am looking for a book that gives the basics of tear down and rebuild. Thanks for your help!

"How to Build the SMALLBLOCK CHEVROLET" by Larry Atherton and Larry Schreib. It is an S-A Design Workbench book.
Very good book with alot of detail and explanation.

Oh, forgot to mention, many of the books are geared towards race engines. I had that trouble when I looked for a book for my big block. I chose two, Big Block Performance, and Chevy Rat Motors. If you want a basic instruction manual for rebuilding (tolerances, torque specs, etc) then maybe a shop manual, instead.

The Vizard book is the best one, in my opinion as well. Especially for doing an older engine like in the 1st gen & early 2nd gen camaro's. Very easy to follow. I've had my copy since around 1980.
