Factory service manual FTW

Postby theholycow » Fri May 13, 2011 8:14 am

Man, why did I ever fool around with Haynes and Chiltons books? The GM service manual is way better.

I got mine on eBay in what may have been the best eBay transaction I've ever had, and I'd like to thank him by posting a link to his eBay store.

For best results, get the Chassis Service Manual and the Body Service Manual for your year and make.

Now I'm just trying to find a satisfactory GM parts manual/catalog covering a wide enough variety of years and models to make it easy for me to substitute and custom choose parts. I found a couple on eBay but they're like $150+.

The FSMs are always worth the money. I looked around and couldn't find one for my truck and went ahead and spent the $150 to buy it from Helm.
