My '65 shop manual which was at least 20 years old, finally died. It had a good life, but it was time to replace it. After poking around the net looking to order a new one, I came across an eBay seller who had all of the LM shop manuals on a searchable CD. I asked Clarks if they had a similar product and they said they no longer carried the CD - only the paper manuals. So I went with eBay.

My CD arrived today and it's much better then I expected. Here's what came on the CD:



Now the pictures and text are clear and best of all, since they are all PDF's, I can search for any text string and single click to go to any of the manual sections in which the text is found. This is something to consider if you're thinking of getting a new 65 shop manual or a supplement...

Here's the eBay link: eBay LM Shop Manuals CD

Yes CDs are very nice, but occasionally I want a paper copy of certain pages, like specs or a specific procedure. Nice to have a paper copy in garage to quickly get it to reference to at those times.

But saying all that, I have the paper copies in the garage, BUT I have also put a laptop in the garage. It has all the manuals and all my vehicles photos/data to quickly go to when I need the the info to look at.

When my wi-fi signal is good, I can get on internet and I google any new info I need for my Vairs, 68 Camaro and my newer Malibu & Silverado Z71.

BUT, got to have clean work space and fingers for computer work in the garage.

Make sure when you install a CD you have your anti-virus software scan the disk BEFORE it accessed.

I've had one Corvair Ad CD I bought that had malware on it!!!!

Offshore companies will make up CD's at a bargain price so they can load malware on the CD and then they end up with your information they sell.

The CD's appear to work fine, but the malware is quietly working in the background.

You can download my "Corvair Kit" here:

Corvair Kit 2020 - ZIP

It has the shop manual, Corvair Gold, and Corvair Basics. And a bunch of other tech articles, 60s magazine reprints, and advertising literature.

The link above is to a very large ZIP file. You can also explore individual files here:

Corvair Kit 2011 - Browse

Keep in mind there is more to be found in the ZIP file.

It worked better earlier. Looks like the seller removed the particular item from his eBay listing(s). Just a guess. Know nothing about eBay.

Do an eBay search for the search term Corvair manual CD -fits

It will find all Corvair manuals CDs. You must use the -fits to get rid of other cars that aren't Corvairs.

To be more specific you can put your Corvair model year at the beginning of the search term.

Instead of going to some unknown seller how about a reputable business? I have dealt with these guys and I have the full set of CD's for the Corvair plus for a '51 Caddy!

I have purchased from Detroit Iron[/b] and I like what they offer. Might be a little more expensive but they are legitimate.

No problem, Gary.

Though I admit it has a lot of 1965-1966 LM bias. spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

When I last checked the seller had 1 CD left. He had 17 to start with. He must have deleted the post once he ran out of product.

Here is a working link: eBay GM LM Documentation CD

However, I didn't realize Ken had these available. Would be a better source if you're looking to purchase one.

Also, Eric seems to have some online documentation available...
