I'm new to the street rod hobbie and I'm looking for some help from some of you guys that have been around for a while. I have a 351C in pieces that's been bored .40 over I have done very little engine work and I'm looking to learn how to build it myself. If you could help with suggestions on where to start, I would greatly appreciate it. Looking forward to your reply. Thanx.

I would go to a book store and find whatever publications are available on the 351C. Peterson Publications typically has books that are geared for novice and pro alike and are very detailed. One thing I have learned is that you cannot pay enough attention to detail and cleanliness is next to Godliness. Take your time and do it right the first time! Good luck and have fun!
If you get near Felts Field in Spokane, look up Addison Pemberton and get a tour of his antique airplane projects. We built several while he was here in so. Calif. and they are worth the time! I warn you though: you may become addicted to airplanes.

Thank-you for spending the time to reply, I certainly will look into your advice.
One of the friends that will be helping me with my 66 is a recreational pilot and I'll ask him if he knows Addisson. He flies out of Felts Field all the time and he's a real plane buff, knows a lot of people here.
Again thanx for the help and I'll let you know how it turns out.
