We seem to be going through a period where well-known people in our hobby are passing on.

Some on here have seemed to have little use for Haynes manuals. I've always found them to be useful adjuncts to the factory manual if for no other reason than the pictures can be helpful and many of the work-arounds when Churchill tool blah-de-blah isn't at hand can help get the job done.

I have one for my 80's era pick up truck and it is OK.
The last one I bought was for a 2003 VW we had, and it was almost useless for much other than regular maintenance.

But it did get me through a timing belt change :-)

it never registered with me that there was actually a human being
behind the Haynes creation.Sorry to see his passing.
i have just one such manual, on weber, su, strombergs... and it has proven helpful...
in concertwith other publications... looking at their website
it is remarkable the numerous publications.. I just would hope
they are more helpful than not. This age of the digital and dowloadable
is vital for accessing information, but nothing beats walking to the shelf,
pulling out the well-used, but cared for printed page...to find the
needed information.
Mr Haynes was a pioneer. RIP.

Worth reading:
Haynes Lockheed SR71 Blackbird Owners Workshop Manual.
Far more interesting than that Bentley knock off.
