Helm Manuals

Just wondering here but I'm looking at maybe picking up the shop manuals for the 02. Looking through helms sight. (ebay hasn't been much help seemingly, and don't want cd/dvd. More of a paper kinda guy) Anyways, looking at teh helm sight there, if i wanted to order teh whole kit and kaboodal, I'll have to go through the whole set of manuals there to get the shop manual(s), the wiring diags, pc/ed, etc. Or is there a whole package deal somewhere to just pick it all up? Thanks for any insight on this.

I just bought a haynes manual for superduty online (have not recieved it yet). It was not too expensive. Got it off ebay. You looking for something like this? Haynes Publications 36060 Repair Manual | eBay

That is interesting that the Helms site doesn't offer a comprehensive set unless you by the CD-Rom. For the GM trucks, at least the OBS, I was able to get a complete kit in paper with wiring diagrams, the complete service manual, and even a supplementary manual for transmission and transfer case overhaul and repair.

However, looking at the Helms site for my year F350 (2000), I see that they don't offer this kit.

BTW, the Haynes manual is OK for minor repair, but I find it lacking in detail for anything other than the types of jobs that you could probably wing without a manual (alternator, starter, water pump, brakes, etc.). The only really good thing that I've found is that at least it has wiring diagrams. The problem with the Haynes manual is it covers too many vehicles in one publication. It's an OK reference, but an actual service manual would be better if you are the type of DIY'er that takes on the big jobs.
