In my opinion it's the most informative book on Ford V8 engines out there, especially for 351M/400 engines! -- By Tom Monroe.

Lots of info on the FE Blocks as well, but not much on the 429/460. This book is best suited for 302/351W/351C owners. -- By George Reid.



Holley Carburetors, Manifolds & Fuel Injection

This book is an absolute must if you plan on rebuilding or modifying a Holley carb. I have this book and have used the information within it to rebuild and modify my Holley carb for off-road performance. There is no way I could have done it right without first reading this book. -- By Mike Urich & Bill Fisher


Carter Carburetors 

Everything (and more) you ever wanted to know about Carter carburetors. This book covers the basics of Carburetor theory all the way to high-performance modification for racing applications. I plan to use some of the techniques in this book to rebuild an Edelbrock #1405 Performer to evaluate on my Bronco! -- By Dave Emanuel


Rochester Carburetors

It is generally well known in the carburetor world that the Rochester Q-Jet 4brl carbs are the best carbs out there for 4-wheeling. I like to call them "The Cadillac of Carburetors". I used to race Buick & Oldsmobile engines with Q-Jet carbs and I can't tell you just how valuable this book was to me. If you plan on running a Q-Jet on your Ford (or any vehicle) then this book is a must have! -- By Doug Roe


The Haynes Ford Automatic Transmission...  

Books on how to rebuild Automatic Transmissions are very hard to find. This is one of the few books I could find on rebuilding Ford transmissions. It covers the C3, C4, C5, C6 and some AOD transmissions. I wouldn't even try to rebuild my transmission without first reading this book. -- by Jeff Killingsworth & John Harold Haynes

Clutch & Flywheel Handbook

This was one of the best books on the market some years ago for the repair and maintenance of manual transmission clutches & flywheels. Unfortunately, the book is out-of-print. However, you can place an order for the book at Amazon and they will search their network of used book stores to try and locate a copy. They will not charge you for the order until they have located the book and sent you an e-mail for your approval to buy it. -- By Tom Monore.


Manual Drive Trains and Axles

Editorial review: Explains the technical aspects of modern drivetrains as used in cars, light trucks, and utility vehicles. Covering the traditional rear wheel drive, the modern front wheel drive, and four-wheel and all-wheel drive systems, the author discusses the theory of basic operation of these systems and the methods used to diagnose, adjust, and repair them. The use of electrical and electronic devices and other recent evolutionary changes in manual drivetrains are also covered -- By Thomas W. Birch

Ignition & Valve Train

Performance Ignition Systems :... 

I have this book and I found it to be very informative and full of useful information. Christopher Jacobs holds a PHD in Electrical Engineering, and after reading this book I felt like I just completed a high-level college course in ignition systems! It covers mostly Jacobs products (obviously) but it also covers in detail the theory & operation of ignition systems. -- By Christopher A. Jacobs.

Trying to figure out what cam shaft to put in your Bronco? If so, then this book can help you do it.

Contains tons of very useful information. -- By Des Hammill

Repair Manuals

Ford Pick-Ups & Bronco Automotive Repair Manual 1973-1979

Like most Haynes repair manuals, this one is well written and covers most general maintenance and troubleshooting in detail for '73-'79 Ford Trucks. It's not as detailed as the factory service manuals, but it's a good supplement. I still refer to it when the information in the factory manuals is too vague or complex for the typical home mechanic. It's the only 3rd party repair manual you'll need for your Bronco. -- By John B. Raffa


Chilton's Ford Pick-Up and Bronco Repair Manual 1976-1986

This manual is a must have for all 76-86 Full-Size Ford trucks, but especially so for 78-79 Broncos. I found this manual to be more comprehensive than the Haynes manual AND the Chilton's manual has vacuum & electrical diagrams too! Some of the info in the manual is incomplete, and in some cases not even correct, but for the most part it is a must have book.

Ford Handbooks & Reference Materials

Performance Modifying Ford Trucks : For...

Here's a book just for modifying Ford Trucks for performance. I have not read it yet, but it sounds very interesting. Covers performance modifications from mild to wild and from street & strip to off-road. I can't wait to read this one! -- By Richard Johnson


Ford F-Series Pickup Owner's Bible : A...

This book is a great reference for full-size Ford Truck owners. It contains the history of Ford Trucks, a buyers guide, tons of technical info, and a comprehensive performance section. My only complaint about this book is that the author basically blew off the 351M/400 engines as being useless and excluded them from the performance section. I guess he never took the time to build a "M" engine to see just how good they really are. Other than the "Anti-M" bias, it's a great book. -- By Moses Ludel


Ford Pickup Trucks (Enthusiast Color)

All I can say is that this book has 96 pages of some of the most beautiful Ford Trucks in existence. I think you'll be as surprised as I was at some of the rare trucks in this book. -- By Steve Statham

Tough Tales : Stories by Owners and Fans of Ford F-Series Trucks

Here's a new book (July 2000) I found that sounds really interesting. It consist of 112 pages of stories about Ford Trucks. I have not read it yet, but it sounds like it would be great reading. Special order only. -- By Judy Scott

Four Wheeling Handbooks

The Off-Road 4-Wheel Drive Book :Choosing, Using, & Maintaining Go Anywhere Vehicles 

Surprisingly, this book covers 4-Wheeling in Europe! Covers places like England, the Middle East, and even the Sahara Desert. The book also contains goods tips and information on negotiating very rough terrain. -- By Jack Jackson

4-Wheel Freedom : The Art of Off-Road Driving

I have not yet read this book, but as soon I get back into 4-wheeling I plan to read it. The book contains information on how to drive on many types of terrain, including snow and ice. The book also puts an emphasis on environmentally-friendly 4-wheeling, which is something I strongly believe in. -- By Brad Delong


4 Wheel Drive Handbook

This book is written by James T. Crow, who is the author of my favorite handbook, "The Off-Roader's Handbook" by HPBooks. This book is currently out-of-stock from the publisher, but James's 4WD Handbook is the next best thing. Very good reading and lots of off-road driving information. I think everyone should have a copy of this handbook before they head for the trails. -- By James T. Crow

4x4 Magazine Subscriptions


4-Wheel & Off-Road

I have only been reading Petersen's 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine for about a year now, but I can say that I think it's a great 4x4 magazine. Every time I pick one up there is always something interesting to read in it, and they also seem to write more articles than most others for 78-79 Broncos.


Four Wheeler

Well, what can I say? Four Wheeler has been around forever, and I was even subscribing to their magazine WAY BEFORE I bought my Bronco back in the early 1980s. I still read Four Wheeler when ever I get the chance, and I think it's just as good now as it was back then.
