    I am new to the Blazer family with a recent purchase of a 1985 Blazer silverado. It has become apparent with a recent radiator repair that I could use a good repair manual. Any suggestions on which one to buy?
    Thanks AL

    I've got the Haynes, and other than the indepth on carbs, it's pretty crappy and is missing a lot of stuff. Lucky for me, I found a great online tech resource...........COLORADOK5!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks I found the Helm website, publishers of the original shop manuals I think I will go with them, expensive but I think they will be well worth the $$. AL

    How about a regular Chiltons manual. I scored mine on Ebay for about $7.

    I have a Haynes, which as we all agree ain't the greatest. Fortunatly our local library has a couple Chiltons and between the two it's pretty good. G.M. factory is the best.
