John Haynes the creator of Haynes Publishing Owners Workshop Manuals has died aged 80.

Which bloke on here with any mechanical aptitude hasn't used one of these to service or repair their pride and joy from the 60's, 70's and 80's?

Thanks to John and these manuals I saved many pounds and often lots of time.

Still got loads of them in a filing cabinet in the garage, maybe one day they might become a collectors piece, probably not in my lifetime though!!

Should have bought a pair of Stilton cheeses for the next time he came in.

Always remember as an apprentice the journeyman told be to go and get the footprints.  Took me a bit to realize there really was such a tool.  It said it right on 'em.  I thought he was just extracting the urine as we used to say.
