This is a great book for new owners or folks who want to start doing more of their service and maintenance. From changing your oil to rebuilding your tranny, each project it rated for difficulty, time & cost, and includes suggested related projects to consider while you are 'in there'. The pictures are great and the writing is clear. This is a must have for anyone who wants to do some of their own 911 work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

It's not a service manual (those are boring) and it's not just a coffee table book with no susbstance (who needs more of those). For those of you with 911's of any year, especially '65-'89 this book is an invaluable addition to your library. I enjoy the book because it's a very handy project book. I appreciate the personal tips that the author adds to the text for each project. For me, service manuals are sometimes frustrating because they give you the procedure but none of the experience comes through. This author has defintely performed all of the projects himself and all of the information there is valuable. The articles are concise and to the point. I especially appreciate the suggested secondary repairs/upgrades that should be performed while accomplishing any of the 101 projects listed. One of the biggest benefits of this book is that it is written for the home mechanic. I know that I do not have the same facilities as the dealership in town. This author may have the facilities but you wouldn't know that by reading the book...and that's a good thing. He has many shortcuts and tips that help the home mechanic. The pros may use a specific tool and if the author knows you can get around that (because often they are not available) then he tells how. That alone has saved me. Also, you know (before you get halfway through a service manula) what will be involved and what difficulties you may run into. I know exactly how long it will take, what tools I need, how much it will cost, and what to expect. So far, due to time constraints I have only been able to perform 7 of these tasks.....some of which I didn't even know I could do until I bought the book. I highly recommend it and it's the perfect compliment to the other 911 books out there. I also own Bruce Anderson's book, a few of the 911 reference books, the Haynes manual, and the Bentley manual. This book is at the top of my pile right now. Enjoy getting your hands dirty!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
