Sounds like all you should require is a Ford Shop Manual. It's all in there, easy to follow, you can do it.
I agree with 4ocious
about getting some books. Been wrenching cars a long time and I still get the books out (bought all the books for my 65), ask for advice like you or use the net when I'm not sure. If you were around Chicago I would love to show you how to do it but your both too far away. You could also take Baz D
up on his offer, give him food and beer! What's that saying about teaching a man to fish? Best of luck, Jim
