    I'm in need of a good manual to help me fix my 91 K5. I'm getting the scanner soon but that won't help me if I don't know what I'm looking at. So what do ya'll recommend? I need something that will say if this code do this, if that's in check, do this, blah blah blah. So what's the best book?

    TIA,
    James

    They are right with the service manual, but most of the time, the "electrical manual" is seperate, and equally invaluable IMO. Later manuals GM seperated the wiring diagrams/troubleshooting because they are so extensive and so much more "complex" than earlier vehicles.

    The factory manuals (helms) are top drawer for our 'era' Chevy's. The set I have consists of the main 3 books.. (wiring diagrams, Light duty truck unit repair manual, and r/v, g, p model service manual) plus a dealer service update bulletin supplement(s). Somewhere around here (may be up to the shed as it's used more there than in the office) I have a 4th as well and probably as important (or moreso) but the Drivability (& TBI Troubleshooting?) book. That one as a bunch of checklists for how they drive. I believe it's also a Helms.
