:spanked: I was looking at all that info and wondered if I should send it to you. I didn't and now I won't be back home for a month. Sorry.

Don't mean to butt in here, but he's gonna' need all the clearance and torque specs for a SB, along with the valve adjustment stuff for a hydraulic lifter cam.

Any of the generic How To Rebuild A Smallblock Chevrolet reference guides will tell you what you want to know. Engine installation/removal is straightforward. You will need an engine hoist with as long an arm as possible. AIM shows location of engine and tranny mounts, bell housing bolts, etc.

He would be better off buying the book, as that's a lot of info to try and scan.

Many of our fine vendors will likely have the factory service manuals in stock, if you dont have any luck that way go to www.helminc.com thats who supplies the factory manuals, all my manuals are from them. When dealers used to get paper manuals(its all web now) thats where they cam from.

:agree:

But remember he's in the UK and there's a bunch of extra taxes he's got to pay plus the shipping costs..

TY everyone

Appreciate in all the fast responses, Here's where I'm at. I took the block
in yesterday to a machine shop, not close, but he did the heads last year and I figured got to try someone. He's boiling and cleaning it plus honong,etc. That'll
be ready in a few days......oh he's also pressing the rods together with the flat-tops. Then I'm gonna try and put it all together myself. TimAT has been
very generous with his time and advice and I am grateful for that and the
many other favors far beyond from someone we have never even met.! He
practices the very spirit of Vette kinship and is a true Ambassador of this site.
I just wanted a scan of a few pages taking me from when I attach the
block and put in the rings, etc. especially how to press them together without damaging them,,,,,,,,once that is done, I'm pretty sure I can put the rest
of the jigsaw together......it's just that part Iv'e never done, the top end
I have.......One ofmy mainconcerns was the balancing bit, but now Tim and several experts have assured me that only applies if I'm gonna revv her at 8-9's...I don't usually go past 6's......againmany many thanks please keep in touch.......it's like family here.......Mark.

I have both original publications from GM for a '72 vette, the service manual, which covers the entire '72 chebby line, including the vette, and the overhaul manual also....I willing to sell them now as my car is so far removed from stock, I am writing my own service manuals.....:laughing: :rolling:

I can send them, via USPS....but have no clue how long it would take to get there....

make me an offer if you wish....
