Here's one.. Which would be a better guide for me Falcon?

Or is one good in some sections, the other better in the rest? Is there a clear winner?

1: Ford Repair Manual

I use the Max Ellery's over the bulky Ford one.
and the Hayes one hasn't left the toilet in ohh... 2 yrs.

So from me, Max Ellery's all the way! They even sent me a new book!

I bought them all. Ford one is the best, but it's so big that often I pick one of the others for looking up simple things quickly. As for the others they all have there weak points - which ever you choose will be a compromise in some areas.

Alright, is this FORD manual one you've gotta "find" or can it just be bought from Ford or wherever by the end user?

Very interested, maybe we could find it on the net if someone looses it on the net?!

I'm still keen to just purchase a Gregorys too now.

cd as in radio?? or cd as in dvd/cd for computer? and that would only realy help if you could run it on a lap top so you could be able to use it as a reference beside you as i often do with the "gregories" when im working on my car...

:!: Use the cd and print out the required pages you need at the time so no books to get ruined with grubby fingers etc :( or do the job a dozen times and remember how it's done the next time like a good mechanic. :D :D :D
