Workshop manuals

Post by _Zeb_ » Tue Jun 25, 2019 5:39 pm

Hi,
I'm considering buying a workshop manual and I see mainly two different versions, the Brooklands one and the one from the RSSOC.
What do you think of those books?
What are the main differences (beside the price)?
Are they complementary?
Is the one from the RSSOC far better? Or too technical but the other one too light?
Thanks for your advice.

The Brooklands manual confuses models quite a bit but has the main info. The ones the club has reprinted are the original Reliant dealer publications.
