Ok as a starter book when buying your first Mustang. Includes most topics, but I feel that it is just scraping the surface of them.
I would like more pictures of parts and details.
The print and paper quality is not worthy for a Mustang.

2.0 out of 5 stars This manual is vague and incomplete. 1 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I suppose this book is fine for those people who aren't going to attempt to do more than change the oil or maybe replace the brake shoes. I've found that anything more than that is either skipped over or mentioned only in passing. For example, the section on installing the intake manifold consists only of a picture of the manifold. The fault diagnosis sections aren't terribly helpful either. A few possibilities per symptom are listed, but they are very vague, for example, "mechanical damage." Occasionally you will find a helpful bit of information, but for the most part this book is a waste of money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wait, this is an overhaul manual? 8 Aug 2000
By Gearhead Mania - Published on Amazon.com
This is an overhaul manual? I could have sworn it read like the Sunday comics with its pictures and captions. There is hardly enough beef in this book to help anyone rebuild an engine. Maybe if you had a NASCAR crew chief with 30 years of experience on your side you'd be able to rebuild an engine with this guide, but otherwise it's useless. At least I borrowed the book from a library and didn't waste my money. There's not enough detail, not enough clarity, and the instructions are vague. It spends like the first 5 chapters discussing how to use a micrometer and know how to build your own workbench. If I wanted to build a garage - I'll get my dad to help or a Bob Vila book, thank you very much.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for a Novice 27 Dec 2005
By Ronnie Pigott - Published on Amazon.com
I am rebuilding a 1966 Mustang with no prior experience. This book did not even get me to the point that I was able to identify the parts of my carburetor and determine what steps I need to take to replace it. This book is for someone with great mechanical knowledge...to the point that they would not need this manual anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Complete *General* Maintenance & Repair Manual 18 Sep 2011
By J.R. Shumacher - Published on Amazon.com
This is the first book to get if you are going to work on a 1964-1973 Mustang (and probably the only one you'll ever need). I don't know what some of the highly-negative reviewers on Amazon expected, or how much hands-on auto repair experience they have, but the Hayes Mustang Repair Manual has been the best *general* How-to-do-it, step-by-step manual for these cars since it was first published back in the early 1970's. It has stayed in print since then because a million Mustang owners have found it invaluable over the past 46 years. Sure, the engine-rebuilding section is slim -- it's for people who already know how to rebuild an engine, but it is complete. If you don't know how to rebuild an engine then you really need a task-specific manual devoted to rebuilding the particular engine you're working on -- don't expect a general whole-car tune-up and repair manual like this to give you more than an overview of something so complex as an engine rebuild. I don't know why the person who couldn't identify his carburetor parts with this book had a problem -- there are full page diagrams of how each part of the several different factory carbs go together in here -- maybe he had an after-market carb, which wouldn't be covered since the Hayes manual covers the cars as they came from the factory. Duh.

I've owned 6 Mustangs from the 1960's and this book has been all I've ever needed to keep them on the road. And, yes, I rebuilt my 1968's 289 V8 using nothing but this book. I actually have two copies, one in the trunk and one in the house. This manual is the best place for anyone working on an old Mustang to start. If it turns out it doesn't quite give you all you need for what you're doing, then you can go looking for a task-specific manual or ask around on the internet forums. But I always check my Hayes manual first and rarely have to look elsewhere for my answers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless 11 Nov 2010
By Brandy - Published on Amazon.com
Don't waste your time or money with this book. There is barely any actual information in this book on the Mustang. It's mostly contains all the other generic information found in the other manuals. Save yourself some frustration and order the Ford factory service manual and the Osborne assembly diagrams instead from a vintage Mustang parts supplier.
