Get tom monroes book, " How to rebuild your small block Ford." Takes you through the process step by step. From removing the engine to teardown, machine work, assenbly etc. Excellent book. I have my copy for over 20 years now and still use it all the time (it shows too. Might be time for a new copy).
That book and an actual Ford shop manual for your truck will be all you will need. Oh, and of course some common sense.
