392 hemi assembly manual

i picked up my block and rotating assembly from the machine shop yesterday and am ready to assemble it.
in all the hemi manual that i have there is nothing printed regarding torque specs, end play etc.
does anyone know of a online source that i can download an assembly manual for a 392 from.
or do any of you have this info that you could email me?

thanks greg

Hi Greg,

Congratulations on building an early Hemi! Poncho62 has an excellent suggestion. Check out Centerline's website. It has a lot of good information and photos.
My Hemi buildup is now complete and I have documented it here on this website. You can find it in my project journal. Just click on the "view from beginning" link and you'll see how I built mine.
There are a lot of resources for getting the information you need, including books and websites.
If you don't already have it, a good book would be Tex Smith's Complete Hemi Engine Manual written by Ron Ceridono. Another book that I found useful was an original 1957 Motors Auto Repair manual that has all of the original engine information and specs.
Among the online stuff, besides Centerline's website, check out Bob Walker's Hemi website at www.hothemiheads.com. Besides parts for sale, he also lists useful torque and clearance data. Another website that has a lot is www.classichemi.com. Plenty of specs and information on the entire Hemi family.
There are some very knowledgeable Hemi guys on this site also, so if there is anything else we can help out with, please ask, and give us details on what you're building!

Hope this helps,
Steve

You probably don't need it with all the excellent links provided, but if you just wanted a shop manual, you can get it from Faxon.....

I've bought from them dozens of times over the years and have always been satisfied.
