what's the best repair manual?

Just bought my 2nd 7.3, and love it. Can't afford a new one so I got a 2000 F350 with 105,000 on it. Want to get a good repair manual for it. Is there anything better out there than Chiltons? Also, any suggestions on what type of preventative maintenence should be done at this point would be greatly appreciated.

The Chiltons is a decent manual for most shadetree guys, if you are going into schematics and in depth troubleshooting it helps to have the actual Ford manual. You can find these on Ebay on DVD very reasonable. I have both!! But I get most of my info online.

helminc.com is a good location to find true ford manuals as they write them for ford. you may have to call them as they have more than what they show and can give you a good ideal as which ones you need Books where cheaper for my 97 e-350
