Default workshop manual

Is this (the attached picture ) "the" workshop manual to have for the series III? I'm tired of scraping by with my haynes.

If this is the one, they seem to go for $100 new, $60 used. Does anyone know where to get a better price?

forgot to mention... LB Car Co. (recommended by Jose) has a series III "shop" manual, but they are currently out of stock. Are they selling the same thing as my previous picture, or something else?
thanks

the picture you posted appears to be the Mechanics Edition, which would include about 7 or more different booklets, one bookletfor eachsystem of the car. But if it is just 1 booklet, then it is the just the paper edition and you can get the CD version for around $25. (same thing but in a CD).

if LB Carco does not have it, try this:

That looks like AKM9006, which is the commonly reprinted paper manual. You'll usually find Edition 3 which is fine but Edition 5 is worth grabbing up if you have a choice. Its an authentic Jag manual but I think dealerships were issued different manuals in a different format.

You'll also want the S57 wiring guide which is not included in the AKM9006. Jag Services has them 800 842 0912. I think the S57 is included in the CD version of the manual

If you keep an eye on Ebay you can probably saved some money on used manuals

Cheers

well I just checked the price for the CD and it is now $43.00. Used to be $25.00. .....better grab one while you can.

yes, the CD includes the Electrical Chart, and you can take the CD to a STAPLES and have them print you a giantPosterof the electrical chart like I did.
