Re: Haynes or Shilton

Chilton is what I think you mean. I always use Haynes but it has some inaccuracies I ran into when swapping engines into my last Mustang.

Re: Haynes or Chilton

Neither. Go get the real dealership service manuals. They're expensive, but worth their weight in gold. They're good enough that a monkey with a wrench could get everything done, provided they could read...
