Top customer reviews
I gave it 4 stars due to the fact that specifications are excluded, such as ring/spark plug gaping theory. Manufacture specifications are not always easy to locate and as such, a comprehensive but brief discussion on the theory may suffice.
Nevertheless I like this book and it would undoubtedly serve as my reference book for some time.
I was initially leery about purchasing such as expensive book, but I've already learned new things in areas I thought I had mastered. As a bonus, the book functions as a serviceable self-defense weapon in the form of a giant, black brick of doom. It also looks good on a bookshelf if you like to pretend you know how automobiles function.
