    Take a trip to Borders or Barnes and Noble, they usually have a small selection on the shelf. Get some coffee and read thru a few, I know some of the book stores have seats for that. Pick one you like. I don't know that any are better than the rest, and many while they have good info were written years ago and technology has come a ways since then. If you were closer I'd say come on over I have a few you can borrow.

    Dennis Moore's book about small block marine performance is a good read for basic na marine engine building. A bit dated, but great information. Out of print so use interlibrary loan...

    Every stand can be a little different...measure your stand then add an inch. Get some washers and watch you dont thread the bolt by the filter into the filter.

    I like studs for this .... I always keep some 1/4-20, 5/16-18, 3/8-24, 7/16-14, and 1/2-13 allthread in the shop....I make "custom" studs for hanging my engine on the stand....then when you lose them next time, you can simply cut yourself 4 more. I've probably got 50 of 'em laying around in various places...I always lose 'em.

    Allthread and acorn nuts(or regular nuts if you're not worried about cosmetics) work good to make studs/bolts when you're in a pinch and don't have the right size bolt handy.

    Add Smokey Yunick's Power Secrets to your list of books for building a stout small block.
