Re: Repair Manuals

Personally, I have a Haynes manual (basically the same deal as the gregories ones..), and for the few jobs here and there I have performed, it has been quite helpful so far. You'll probably find that the gregories will cover pretty much anything from basic service to headgaskets to fixing up dents. Should be very helpful indeed :)

TQE, SWB, ATPS, Worst of the E-series.. and I wouldn't have it any other way

Re: Repair Manuals

Ive got a gregories and a Max Ellery one. The Max Ellery(sp) is 10x better and way more detailed. Cost an extra $15-20 but well worth it.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............
