    The title says it all

    The Title of this book explains it all. This is basically a shop manual with some history and parts ID added. This book takes you through the rebuilding process step by step, and the photos are well done, but then that's all you get. This book directs most of it's attention to the 427, but shows no information or diagrams of the 427SOHC system. The author barely mentions the 428 at all, including the CobraJet and SuperCobraJet stuff that really interests me. Yes all the big block Fords are basically the same but I think that the book could have done a better job. I also found quite a few grammatical errors and flaws in the writing of the text, that any good editor should have corrected. Lastly, some of the author's techniques during the final assembly process were too sloppy for my taste, I expected better.
