Books on restoration and related topics

Proably the most important investment in time and money on any restoration is ensuring that you have the correct literature for your restoration. In reviewing what was available for the Jensen Healey I was happily suprised by the availability of orginal service documentation and the impressive books by Richard Calver.

Outside of book browsing at local stores I immediately ordered the available technical manuals available at the Jensen Healey Preservation Society site.

There are a series of other books publishd on Jensen and specifically the Jensen Healey. I like to monitor Amazon to see what's available.

From there, I've found fellow enthusiasts to be a great source for these books and especially the harder to find ones. Why, you might ask? Because this "disease" we all share compells us to pick up these sorts of things any time we find them, regardless of whether or not we already have a copy. It falls under that "You never know category." In fact, when it comes to service manuals and parts catalogs I like to have at least two copies. That way I can goober one copy with grease and grime out in the garage and have one pristine copy in the house.
