Do you have a friend or relative that has some mechanical experience? That's how I got my start as my older brother is and my uncle was fairly mechanically inclined. I think it's better to have someone there with experience to watch, instruct and guide you rather than watching videos, reading or posts on the internet. Those are useful tools also but nothing beats having hands on help from someone with experience. Besides, we didn't have YouTube and such in those days. These engines really aren't that difficult as engines go. I've worked on 4 and 6 cylinder engines that were far more complicated. Pay close attention to how things come apart and document everything you can.
