Can anyone suggest a source for a shop manual? I made the mistake of buying one of the $20 downloadable manuals for my Tbird and its a bit of a disappointment. It looks to be a scanned in version of the actual Ford manual but not all of the Ford sections are included. Probably over half of the pages are there but LOTS of sections are missing. It makes the manual more of a source for hints than actual diag & repair guides.

Thx.

i used to use Motor's for my 70 Torino Cobra, 71 cougar and 68 stang.
Haven't looked for them in years but they have good illustrations and details.
Not sure if they have for your T bird..depends on year.
Here's quick link to used on Amazon just for reference.....

My current bird is an '02. I'm currently in the process of acquiring an '04 Pac Coast Edition.

also found on Amazon. The Amazon has three volumes....includes wiring diagram. $300 not bad for factory manual. Their are a few sellers listed.....new is $700+.
If you're keeping the T bird and plan to do your own service, I would get the factory manuals. All other manuals are not as details or specific.
