Re: AMC Engine rebuild book
My advice... visit the library. You should be able to find a few books on engine rebuilding that deal specifically with the AMC's. A lot of the information you'll need is universal though. After you hunt through the library, if you still need more specific info that engine, then look for a book that covers exactly what you need. The big thing here is that you're gonna spend at least $20 to $30 on each book you BUY, but you can borrow them for free. Trust me, if this is your first rebuild, there's gonna be a TON of misc. stuff that you didn't think you needed that will turn up, so your gonna need that cash for things other than books. Also, between the library and this forum, you've really got everything you need to build a great AMC V8, and build it right. When you get ready to start the project, talk to CJDave. He's a whiz with those things and he's got some great ideas on improving the oil system, etc. There are several guys here that have a great deal of experience with those motors, and that kind of experience is often much better than any book. Building an engine the right way sometimes takes a little longer, but it's worth it. You're on the right path though, researching it and finding you information before hand. Good luck, and happy Jeepin'!
