No mention of the real McCoy... Helm Inc.
Printed GM factory manuals may be going the way of the T-Rex but there's nothing like the GM manual when you can lay your hands on them.

I have a few Haynes and Chilton manuals in my tool box. I normally just look at the problem and figure out the correct way by studying electrical diagrams online. I always find that the only part of the manual I really need is the torque specs and occasionally the torque order. Some of them don't use the snail or star method. But other than that they are pretty useless. I didn't really use the actual D***e repair manuals either. Never seen an actual GM or Chevrolet Repair Manual. I have a laptop with wifi that can give me the torque and diagrams most of the time.
