    There is a reason for that too.
     

     
    Here's the very first Haynes manual, Mr H stripped and rebuilt a midget and wrote about it incorporating pictures and diagrams from the BMC and Autocar. This was presumably quite hard going because his next few books were for everything else ever fitted with an a series and mostly a cut and paste from the MG book.

    Honestly though, even Haynes manuals of yore only had a couple of useful bits, the torque settings and contact breaker gaps mostly. Did anyone actually try to follow the dismantling instructions?

    I was going to suggest it was a toss up between the Merc SLK or the Cooper S belonging to Jim Bell, but really the winner is a Citroen Picasso

    I don't think I've ever got all the way through a Haynes step by step disassembly before realising that their car was different to mine and I just started winging it.

    I think all the starship enterprise/zombie survival etc jokey manuals probably outsell the car ones.

    Oh yeah, and don't forget that the new rules also give us testers the power to fail based on visual checks only so I'd recommend fixing your smoky old heap rather than trying to cheat the test.

    I have a Haynes manual so old it isn't even called a Haynes manual (Austin Healey sprite and MG midget by JH Haynes) and that's soft covered.

    Any attempt to try and pull the wool over an inspector's eyes is going to piss them off.
    My tester is honest and fair and if he thought I was trying to trick him, or I tried to quote legislation to him, he may not look to pass and advise something he may have, before I started going "The Male Online" on him.

    Are you sure you test regularly? They binned the advice about abs lamps with the old vts devices about four years back, and it's been ok to pass/advise a warning lamp not illuminating at all since 2012....
