Here are some of the diagrams from the Mustang Restoration Guide. Maybe some of them will be relevant to your setup, Sheryl :)

There is not a written list because there are so many variables.
Here is a picture of Mike Jewels S code. It is just about as correct as they get.

Be wary of friends who add an extra bolt or two to the stack of parts.

Pictures of the valves show a very clean running motor. Well, on that bank!! Not sure what the other side looked like!!

So fun to build your own engine. Done it many times and the feeling when it starts up is like no other in the world! Nearly orgasmic!!!

Here is the other bank of valves. The cylinder walls were great too.
