Yes, me too.
Way back when I got my first Mini I never knew one end of a spark plug from the other, but within a couple of years, I'd rebuilt the whole thing with the help of my Haynes manual. RIP Mr Haynes.

Gone, but not forgotten. I guess most people here have a book of his. 62


I wonder how long before the first meme appears with a Haynes cover about making your own funeral.

I still have a shelf-full of them in my garage to remind me of happier times when it was easy to spanner on your own vehicle. From time to time I'll pick one up and in my mind I'm transported straight back to wherever I was when I owned that vehicle. Good memories (mostly).

RIP Mr Haynes.......6262

49First thing I buy for any vehicle.

It'll become even more important now manufacturers - Triumph are one of them - who only issue digital manuals to dealers. Hard copies simply aren't available to buy :sad:

I suspect that Haynes, as a manual publisher, doesn't have long to live. Cars and bikes are increasingly difficult for the home mechanic, and generation snowflake (with a few exceptions) have little interest or even the most basic of skills to do their own maintenance.

I agree but for a different reason, U Tube is my friend when it comes to DIY or any fettling required on cars or bikes.
