Default FSM...... could use a better index

I have a 98se and just got a FSM all 3 books off ebay for 10 dollars. No ship cause I picked it up . Looking through it for hours I've found looking up some stuff is kinda difficult. Headlights, headlamps arent even listed in the index. wtf? (I Put in my silverstars .) I ended up finding them in the electrical sections which makes since but they cant list it? Especially since you have to remove the whole light assembly, to replace a bulb, or in this case upgrade. Fuel filter was under INLINE fuel filter. Isnt that like calling a spark plug an in the engine spark plug? I looked up spark plugs as well to get a reference for firing order but just found the torque settings and gap. I did change the fuel and air filter, plugs and wires and pcv pipe (try finding that one too in the index.) Dont get me wrong I love my bonnie and have already done more maintenence in one day today then probably all my other cars put together. Maybe I'm just too used to the car manual for dummies, chiltons. What do you guys think???????

if they're writtin for smart people, why are there such lame disassembly instructions? Like for the headlight it says

1. Remove two spinner nuts.
2. Remove headlamp.
3. Disconnect connectors.
4. Reverse for installation

and that takes up half the page.
