[concours] Robert Bentley Publishers

Hello all.

Does anyone have any information on Bentley’s E-Type 4.2 manuals.
I am interested obtaining the Driver’s Handbook, Workshop Manual and the
Spare Parts Manual.
With the cost well over $100US I’m hesitant without some background
information.
Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks
Michael in Toronto.

Michael,
I have one in my possession. I can tell you it is basically the exact
reporduction of both the Drivers hand book and work shop manual. The
Parts book is not included but I think I have one for the 4.2 as well.

Bentley’s is excellent quality. All drawings and photos look great. No
dark gray backgrounds. Pages are however laid up 2 to a page. In other
words the original page 2 and 3 are on the same Bentley page.

I would be glad to photo copy a few pages off for your review. Let me
know exactly what your interests are.

If you are looking for the parts book as well, a quick run to the
basement, and yes I do have the Spare Parts Catalogue for Jaguar 4.2 ‘E’
Type. 282 pages. At 0.025 cents per page thats $7.05 US. If you have
some Jaguar brochures to swap, I would be interested in that rather than
money. I collect everything, what do you have.

Michael,
How is your quest for Bentleys book.

I had mentioned to you that I had the E-Type parts book if that would be
of any help.

Did you find what you needed.

The Bentley’s manual is a reprint of the original Jaguar shop manuals. I
find it invaluable. The most comprehesive and dependable source of repair
information available.

I also have the Bentley books. I agree, they’re great. Many of the
questions askd on this list are covered in these manuals.
