Default Need a referrence

Like many others, I decided to build an AV8 roadster and purchased the Bishop-Tardel book "How to build a traditional Ford Hot Rod" as a guide. Again, like others, I discovered a few inaccuracies in the book. If memory serves, there was a post on here that referred to a posting elsewhere by Mr. Bishop that gave updated/correct dimensions or info. where needed. I can't seem to locate that posting. Does anyone remember it or can someone steer me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

I know the diameter of the holes in the front engine mounts were quoted as 1-1/2" and they should have been 1-1/4".

One thing they don't tell you, is if you use F1 shock mounts in the manner described in the book, and decide to put your headlights on the same mount, is that they will bounce around so much that you'll have a hard time seeing where your going.
Just speaking from experience.
But it looks really bitchin!
