Hi all, new here. Anyways I had a friend from college give me her dads 66 coupe. It needs some help, most of the engine was torn apart; hoses, wiring, distributor cap etc are gone. I'm trying to rebuild it but an engine schematic or blowup of where everything goes would be really helpful since I mainly do work on diesels. Thanks.
Good news - the '65 - '68 manuals are only one volume! They went to five in '69. Oddly enough, the single volume for my '65 is much more informative and easy to use than the five volumes for my '72. I would also strongly recommend '66 Engine Equipment and Electrical Assembly Manuals. These are reprints of what the workers at Ford had to put everything together, and are full of exploded diagrams.
I agree that the shop manual for your year would be best. I keep all my notes, casting numbers, modifications, part#'s, maintenance, etc. in this book so it is a one stop reference. Available ~$50 at most mustang suppliers, 2 I use the most - www.nationalpartsdepot.com www.mustangsunlimited.com
They also sell the wiring harnesses so if you need the complete harness from the firewall to the engine compartment for engine and lighting they'll have that too.

I agree 100% with all the advice you've been given so far. Those are the places I go when I need to figure things out.
Here are some pics of my 65 289. Though not exact, it should be pretty close to your 66. Hopefully this will get you started putting things in perspective of what goes where. If you need more help, let us know. And again, welcome.
