Default Chiltons manual

Where can I get one for my 1992 SSEi. I looked at the local library, Autozone, NAPA, and a few others and couldn't find them. If you have the part number and/or a link to where I could get one let me know. Thanks.

FSM is the best, Chilton'* #28200 is second best. Covers 92-99 H bodies.

you can get chiltons at barnes and nobles and you will most likely have to put it on order because they dont usually keep those on the shelves.

I got mine at an auto parts stores. If you're just swapping out parts, or doing normal testing the chiltons is more then enough. But if you want figures, and very indepth information an FSM can't be beat.

However $20 is much cheaper then $90...

Don't bother with the Chiltons, I've got one and it covers so many different vehicles that it skimps on actual info. Get the FSM.

I heartily (and non-combatively) disagree. 98% of anything you'd ever do is covered by the Chiltons, and it doesn't have too many different vehicles. It'* dedicated to the H bodies, which are all alike.

The FSM, in some cases may be harder to understand.

I have a Chilton'* dedicated to the 92/93 Bonneville, as well as #28200 for the 92-99 Bonnevilles, and also the Clymer and Haynes manuals, and the FSM 2-volume set. Chilton'* is easily #2 and has GREAT value for under $20.

how hard would it be for someone to scan the fsm'* online, like you did for the "Bonneville Boys" article? I dont know how many pages they are, for scanning them.
