Haynes vs. Chilton Repair Manuals


alright guys I get asked from time to time by which manual I prefer which one I use when I’m working on engines and on this Mazda I happen to have two different manuals here and so I thought we would just look at installing the cylinder head the steps so in this manual it’s only one sentence the cylinder head bolts should be tightened in several steps following the recommended sequence illustrations until specified torque is reached so on this page no tightening steps you have to turn over and go to this one we’ve got a timing belt and that’s the sequence you tighten up in from this one we have a 2.2 liter engine we go over here to install position of new head gasket on the cylinder block and install the cylinder head flow to the threads and seat faces the cylinder head bolts and install Titan cylinder head bolts to three steps and proper sequence trying to torque specification is 59 to 64 foot-pounds see a lot more detailed in this book and this book happens to be a Chilton’s and this book is a haynes so to get the torque specs and the hands bucket don’t really tell you you got to go all the way to the father’s chapter and look for them torque specs owner head bolts 59 to 64 pounds so I like the Chilton’s it’s a lot more detailed step more pictures and the installation is a lot more detailed on children’s use the cost to get bit more than Hanes but for the price I would go with Chilton’s now if you’re just needing torque specs the Hanes is just as good as the children’s on torque specs on wiring diagrams and stuff both of them have wiring diagram somewhere no it does times it’s easier to find in this Hanes there’s chassis left will show us that line diagrams 639 yeah so just starting the wiring diagrams got a nice little index for you for me yes if I can find something compatible carbureted engine just Ematic 87 to 93 yeah this means this is Nauti not as easy to find what you’re looking for there’s no index just starch so it is a little nicer to be able to find it drop back and welcome this is system and this is 1984 one we got 1984 okay starting and charging engine control system fuel pump circuit B 2,200 miles so as you can see they break it down a little better and here you got you got one diagram another and another and then another and here it just kind of splits the page but it’s a lot easier really for me this stuff is bigger on here so to me it’s easier to follow this one then would be to follow this one so if I’m having to do the engine of the electrical diagrams I really wanted factor manual because the factory manual is going to be a lot better quality diagrams so that’s my two cents worth each has its pros and cons the Haynes cost list it’s got the same amount or same torque stuff in it same specifications it’s a decent book the Chilton’s is a lot more detailed in the descriptions and the explanations and steps what it’s going to do with neither one of them compared to a factory factory repair manual so if you can find a fat repair manual and you leave you can go to ebay you lean gets us about any factory power Miami we want a lot of them is reproduced so the pictures might not be as good of quality as the originals but there’s so much more detailed then we guys hope this helps thanks for watching
