"Enthusiast Manual" ???

I downloaded the manuals that were posted here, but they instruct the use of special tools, so I'm guessing it's an original shop manual. Are there any enthusiast manuals that show you tricks for performing service using commonly available tools?

Thanks,
Sam

I just searched for "shop manual" hoping that it had already been discussed elsewhere.

Bentley has produced a very good shop manual for our cars. Check around and see where you can get the best deal. Here's an Amazon.com link to it so you can see what it is. I own it and it's great!

Darn it! It's on back order and so is everyone else. Do any of you have a Bentley Service Manual you'd like to sell me so I can get crackin' on building my TTC race car?

Thanks!
Sam
