Sadly, there is very little printed information relative to the EarlyHemi engines, but plenty of web-based info. As with all reference material, double check on anything that is critical for a rebuilding operation.
The availability of the books listed may change due to the publishers and distributors whims, some may be out of print and some may be found in used book shops or on-line auctions.
Tex Smith’s ‘The Complete Chrysler HEMI Engine Manual’ written by Ron Ceridano.
This book is considered the ‘Holy Grail’ by some EarlyHemi fans, and as good as it is, it has errors, omissions and is far from complete.
I seriously question the ultimate value of this book at the record high prices currently sought…
