As the title says I'm looking for a manual and reference book, new or used, but in decent condition.
Thanks, Rut

As I recall - the Bentley publication is a reprint of the factory manual and possibly the owners manual - both of which should also be available in their original form.

FWIW - There is a new Haynes manual on eBay right now that may not get bid up much as it is poorly listed (left a space after 'TR'.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/311259833107?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

The Haynes manual is not without limitations (and even errors) but I have always found it a ready & handy reference for everything from routine maintenance to building an engine.

Thanks, yes the Bentley manual is a reprint including the drivers handbook and the performance manual very much like the ones for my MGB and Bugeye. I've found the Haynes manual lacking in some specific data and even incorrect on some procedures. I hoping someone on the forum might have what I need or know of these at a price I can swallow!
Thanks, Rut

Scott,
Thanks, do you know if it includes the drivers handbook and performance manual? I couldn't find any info about that in the description.

Berry,
Thanks again! I've not heard from my inquiry yet, but hope springs eternal! Not sure that it matters, but I use Bentley manuals on my MGB and Bugeye and know my way around them pretty good...kinda like going into the same grocery store chain. I won't have the car for a couple of weeks and I still have to finish the MGB engine rebuild, so I've got time.
Thanks, Rut

I don't know as I haven't bought this version yet but have been considering picking up a copy as my original early 80's Bentley copy is very beat-up having gone through the restoration of my TR4A at that time (front and rear covers gone and pages missing from both ends).

The Brooklands is listed as having 360 pages while the Bentley is listed as having 404 pages so my guess is no.
