I have a '93 900 Superlight that I have been maintaining for the past 15 years. Between the curiously-translated shop manual & the Haynes book, regular maintenance has actually been pleasurable.

Having heard a lot about the LT Snyder book on this forum, I am curious if this book will add to the pool of maintenance-related information.

Thank you.

Yes it will. It covers the 2V engines back to the '92 907's models. It also includes the 3V engines from the ST series. It's well worth the $43 delivered to your door cost.

Thanks, Jack. Although at this point I don't feel that I am lacking in knowledge to maintain my '93 Superlight, I am not so smug to believe that there is nothing else I can learn.

...there might be a few tidbits in there that are new to you, but if you've been doing your own maintenance this long , I doubt theres anything of use to you....on the contrary , with 15 yrs experience, you could probably teach LT a thing or two !!

I have both Haynes and Snyder, and while there are a few things Snyder may explain a bit better than Haynes, I found the Haynes manual more than adequate (and it covers a lot more stuff). I agree with dancinkozmo. You probably don't really need Snyder.

You don't really need it but it sounds like you're in this for the long haul....I'd get LT's book. Some of it is more opinion than fact but it's a pretty good reference source to have around. My view with the bevels has been to get everything that's ever been written about them. It has paid off.

+1, but it's still worth having.

if you are going to rebuild a motor you need haynes or the shop manual. for everything else i go snyder. he actually talks about potential problems and fixes.it more in the style of "the idiots guide to vw repair." remember that one?
