I've been buying original, genuine factory service manuals from these guys for decades. I found out early on that the aftermarket manuals are useless, saying pretty much "disassemble, then re-assemble in reverse".

Yeah, hee hee, those Chiltons and Clymers, Haynes....all lack any usefull info for the most part. I too figured it out early on.
Motors Manuals are a good print, but as Tech said the factory service manuals are the best all around, as they will have info that only the manufacturer would have (and doesnt want to share).
