I can't find them online anywhere so I just bought one off of eBay. Marie they're the books that Ford gives the techs to work on the cars. I got mine for 35 shipped, which was a hella good deal. They normally go for 50+. This is the one I got:

Yeah, I would like to have a electronic version too. A couple people on this site have the CDs, I wish they would host them up on a server or something.

your talking about the full fledged hard core mechanics service book.

Just get an account with alldata. they are one of the best tech manuals you can get online and its more detailed than chiltons. it also has a search function.

I think for one truck it would be 30$ but its hella worth it. you get full tsb updates and whatnot.
