Building the 350, need some pointers

Alright, I'm almost ready to build this small block chevy 350. Before I start, I was wondering if anyone could refer me to a valuable "source" (preferably online) that would list all the general clearances. I'm aquiring plasti gauge and feelers and would like to do this right. Also, from watching youtube I have found there is alot of little tedious things (like tang to tang...etc) that I really hadn't thought about. I know I'm diving into it all head first, but this is what I like to do so if anyone has any little pointers, things to remember, important tips, don't do this or it will blow up scenarios, or ANYTHING that could help steer an amateur engine builder in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. I have some books on rebuiding small blocks, but these all seem to be about generic non performance builds and don't go into the nitty gritty details. Thanks!

Anything over .003 is too much. Anything under .0015 is not enough.
