Bought a used Haynes manual online. It's an older one--covers "all 240 models 1974 thru 1980."

Problem is, it doesn't have the B21F (with which my 1980 242 is equipped) engine in it. It says That "the B21 has two versions-B21A and B21E."

I'm wondering how much difference there could possibly be with respect to general maintenance. Thoughts?

I mean between the E and F, not the A and F, of course.

That Haynes manual makes a great drink coaster...

Haynes manuals have always been bad. The photos are copies of factory manuals and usually too dark to be of any use. The info is not always correct. Nothing beats a factory manual.

Next best choice to a green book is a Bentley manual. That being said, there are occasionally info in my '82 - '93 Haynes manual that aren't in the Bentley.
