Can anyone recommend a good quality, detailed & complete shop/service manual for my '79 corvette? I've seen several listed online for various amounts & formats (ie hard copy vs CD). I've had service manuals in the past that have been less than complete and am looking for a good recommendation.
You'll find the manuals are stronger in some areas than others. I asked the same question a couple months ago for my '69. What I've been doing is buying several manuals from our different supporting suppliers. I just ordered Corvette, 1966-1982: Shop Manual (Motorbooks Workshop). It's not too expensive.
Vette(s): 1969 daytona conv. all original 350 350 380 4 sp w/air..and hard top
Hey again..the shop manual I use are the factory ones from GM..there can be two of them one shop and one repair..can usually find them online or at car swap meets from one of the book guys..might be 50$ for both and it covers more than you should need..if you find you need more I have the AIM also..as it shows every part and number of the car..
Vette(s): 1981 Great White Shark. Red Interior, 350/190hp. PS, PB (SS), A/C CC, T-Tops, Going to remain as Stock as possible. Served three years in Active Duty Army, then Retired Air Force after 34 years! Badger State Vetts Car Club. 175,000 Original miles!!
I found a manual for my 1981 on EBay. I payed $30.00 for mine. I think I got a good deal.
