Hey all, just a very quick question on workshop manuals...

Which is generally considered "better" or more helpful, a Max Ellery EL book or the Gregory's?

Thanks! :D

You are always better to go for a genuine Ford manual, however as they are something like $150+ My preferance is Gregorys, Haynes then Max Ellerys.

hehe, sorry lads, I've got both factory manuals. My cousin knows some people that know some people that robbed some people! But yeah, go Gregory's. Their descriptions can be a bit vague, but if you've got an idea, this website is an excellent place to get some finer details

Gregorys are more specific than Ellorys which generally do two models eg EF-EL per book.
