Vintage PRINTED FSMs

Very tempted to go back to the store where I saw these today and at least buy the two that are official Honda FSMs from the early 1980s.

I thought it would be Flying Spaghetti Monster.

I went to a used book store and they had two books for my Dasher, Haynes and Autobooks. One was eight, the other was eight fiddy, so I got them both.

You speak my language, fellow devotee of the Pasta Lord!

I do WISH they had my Civic's manual. But alas, nope. Still I could get 'em and sell 'em. (Like I need to do THAT with my time).

Research their values first. FSM values vary a lot depending on the car's popularity. I practically gave away a 1985 Accord FSM on eBay.

I did. Haynes & Chilton can be pretty cheap but the FSMs are $30+

Ich bin ein Kekistani.

I can see why you need those manuals now. I thought my Dasher is an odd beast.

Yeah, those old Hondas were nuts with the vacuum system. I remember seeing one that actually had a black box that looked like an ECU or something, but it was all vacuum lines going in and out of it.
