ford 390

I have a ford 390 off of my 1964 ford thunderbird that i reieved torn down to the block. i have never done a engine rebuild before and would like to build this one up. i have manuels and a rebuild book or two, but does anyone know of a video series for engine building? i looked into buying an already rebuilt 390 and the cost is about the same, but i really want to rebuild mine. any thoughts ideas whatever? i am just looking to make her stock, nothing major...

I am unaware of any on FE engines, although we have been considering one from the shop. While any engine rebuild is pretty similar. each engine has it's own nuances. The FE is one in particular. You might google 390 rebuild as I know that some publications have done some in the recent past.
