Default I need a place to start. The basics of a Model T

So, I'm new to Model A's.
I bought an A motor at a yard sale 15 months ago. I met a bunch of local guys, bought lots of spare parts, and I'm building a car.
I'm not an expert, but I've managed to learn enough about A's to pull it off (I think...)

Saturday, an inexpensive T motor showed up on FB.
It doesn't look terrible, and I thought it would be fun to mess with.
However, I've watched a few videos, and decided this thing is from another planet.
What I need, is some recommended reading. Ideally, a basic book that explains disassembly, and gives an overview of the whole car.

The motor does not turn, although I don't see any serious issues in the bores. I don't want to do anything too drastic, until I know how it's put together. Could just be a stuck brake?
Anyway, thanks for any suggestions.
