Engine building/tuning books

Evening all

I'm planning to rebuild my engine before it goes back in the car, but having never done anything like that before I want to do a bit of reading on the subject. Has anyone come across any that they thought were particularly good?

I would say if you havent done anything to do with building engines i would be tempted to let a pro do it for you otherwise it could turn into a costly exercise

I wouldn't be doing it on my own, there's plenty of people at work with experience, I just want to read around the subject before I get stuck in to it. Everyone has to start somewhere!

Theres plenty of really good blogs where people have gone into a lot of detail, youve gotta look for them, but you need an amount of knowledge to understand what your looking at,
If its just taking apart, doing a head gasket etc, theres many topics thatll show you how to time it up, if your changing main bearings and piston rings.. I would agree with above and seek help :-)

Any of the Graham Bell books would be a good start.

Cheers guys. I won't be ploughing into this on my own - I'll be getting help and advice from people at work who've built engines many times before. It's something I'd like to learn though so might as well start on a TU as they're cheap and plentiful
