Haynes......that's underwear isn't it?

I hate Haynes and Peterson manuals with a passion. I especially hate the part where I'm getting somewhere and it says something to the effect of " Further repairs or troubleshooting is best left to a qualified technician". And those "typical" wiring diagrams....give me a break. Can we say "Component locater"?

Do yourself a favor and spend a few bucks and get a real manual like the manufacturers or the big Chilton's. Or better yet, use the Mitchell manuals from the library, cause you surely don't wanna fork out the cash for a Mitchell anything.

The first shop I worked in had an extensive library of Chilton on the shelf and I have always used these brand of books but some guys have made valid points it is always good to cross reference with the other books as well.

I was gonna make a thread about this, but here is this one.

I always thought Haynes were worthless, they make terrible TP.

Chilton is pretty good, but not as good as they were.
I wish there was a cheap way to get good info.
