I already own like 3 of these copy's, but i can't help myself from buying them before someone throws them out, and they're gone for good. Damn you Henry Ford. :-)

I have my reprint from the early seventies with the same "patina"......i.e. oil stains, grease stains and even a little blood.......

Dan, you mention a hardback version......is that a reprint or original Ford? I ask because the pictures in my reprint are a little "muddy".

Original Ford, Blue cover. Dan

I started with a green one that fell out of the binding and I had it held together with rubber bands (this when I was a kid), I've had a couple black ones, one more green one (that also fell apart), and recently finally found my "holy grail" - original Ford issue, Blue hardbound cover that came out before the "improved cars".

I trimmed the binding/spine off and hole punched mine, put in a small ring binder.

Susanne -- I bet you thought you had died and gone to heaven when you got an original Service Manual. The pictures are SO much clearer! :-)

The photos are so bad in mine I had the crazy idea of reproducing all the scenes and submitting the photos, in B&W of course. Much of the info is wrong for our improved coupe though.

Vern, the latest editions have a section on the improved models.

My "gripe" is the opposite. Since I have a reprint of the last edition, many details peculiar to the early pre-1921 cars are not covered. Right now, I'd like to see the manual section on the pre-1919 enclosed pinion bearing.

Does anyone know when the first comprehensive shop manual was compiled and published ? Was there a manual that covered the early cars ?
