good book for glide and T-350

Hey guys, I'm trying to get some suggestions on some good books/svc manuals for the powerglide and th350 transmissions. I recently swapped a th350 into my 66 impala, and still have the original powerglide. I figured the glide would be a great way for me to learn the ins and outs of automatic transmissions. I would like to do a complete teardown and rebuild of the powerglide, beefing it up as more of a street/strip setup. I figure since i have the new th350 and its my working transmission, i can take my time with the glide. I also figure that most of what I learn from working on the glide will fundamentally translate to the th350 as well, so that when I eventually need to rebuild it, I will already have a knowledge base to work from. Thanks for any suggestions. What I'm looking for in a book is something that has good diagrams and pictures, and good in-depth explanations as to the purpose and function of all of the parts.

Carl Munroes book, " Powerglide Transmission Handbook", by HP Books is pretty good. There are others by a couple racing transmission builders also. Munroes book on E-Bay can be had for 13-20 dollars.

The Ron Sessions book on the Powerglide is also very good, details all of the performance mods along with basic rebuild practices.
