There are a lot of good threads and websites out there. Keep in mind that most are not from professional mechanics. I did my first one 2 years ago. You will probably make a few mistakes (hopefully minor). Take your time, keep logs, stay organized and pay attention to detail. I took a lot of pictures for reference as well. Ask the TT community or your local mechanic on specifics as they arise. Make sure you have a manual in hand before starting. Spend the money on the CORRECT speciality tools. Correct size ball hone brush, feeler gauges, micrometer, flywheel puller, valve spring compressor etc. If you are planning to tear down another 4t in the future these tools are worth the investment.
I really liked this url when I was building my 426 - http://www.allthings...-rebuild-34962/
I liked the builders style and overall view.
At last, but not least, when in doubt ask Grayracer for help!!
