Compare the general differences in each factory service manual.

I have the FSM and a Haynes for my Z. But I would buy a Clymer manual if I can find a clean one at a good price. Chiltons is okay since it is written in American English whereas Haynes is written in British English.

The Factory Service Manual is remarkably well written and understandable considering its Japanese roots.

They all have some gaps and unique ways of explaining things. That's why I want as many different ones as I can get.

Tom Wilson's How to Rebuild your Nissan engine is a great source, too.

After fiddling with the engines for a while, you probably don't even need a manual. But they are great "armchair reading" for these nippy winter nights.

A great place to learn more about CDROMS containing text-searchable FSMs is at
