Rebuild book?

I know this is A$$ backward but I have my truck just about down to the frame now. I didn't start taking all the parts off the PO started that but I did finish the job. Now, most of the parts are marked and I know approximately how to put the ol '53 F100 back together but I may need some good instructions and pics.
Here is my question....... Is there a GOOD shop manual you guys would please recommend me? I did find this one,,, any good? 1953-54 Ford F-100 Shop Manual, 1953-54


Thanks.

That shop manual should be a good help.
This manual on cd is invaluable:
1948-56 Ford Truck Master Parts Catalog CD - HiPo Parts Garage
It has exploded diagrams of everything and is worth the $22 just to be able to look at the pretty drawings.

Here is an example of one of the pages from the book.

Most of the detailed instructions are for the main elements of the truck: drive train, electrical, carburation. There is limited info on things like door alignment and such. In many ways, this forum is the best source for reassembly info - including fenders and heaters, the latter which typically were not factory options on the Bonus Built.

Since the drivetrain will be mostly different I guess I will save my money for now. Thanks
