Default Blazer Manual

Hey, I found this on rockauto, https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo...050613&jsn=463
is that good manual for 1985 Blazer K5?

Also, there is another one:
https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo...050613&jsn=465

Is there any other manual I could get? Maybe in PDF version?

Soft cover Chilton and Haynes manuals make good harsh rolling paper or slick TP, If your lucky they may show how to change your oil - and may not. they are full of miss guided information and errors - don,t waste your money

As I stated over in your other thread, your best option is a factory service manual. eBay has them. I would go with paper books rather than electronic. They cost more, but I prefer them over electronic. I have a laptop for shop use, but it still is easier to use a paperback book for me.

My Chilton Blazer manual has the picture for installing the parking brake shoes upside down.

Get the official GM service manual. Whenever I need pages from it, I'll make copies from the book, scan them for future use, and then take the printouts to the garage.

I do consult the Chilton now and then just to make sure I'm not missing something as the GM manual sometimes assumes you have tools only a dealer might have or they assume the item being worked on is out of the vehicle.
