Repair and Restoration Manuals

These are produced by a number of publishers, but are dominated by Haynes. When I owned a Series 3 109", I found the Haynes manual useful as a beginner. The photographs and explanations are better for a beginner, although the precision of the official Land Rover workshop manuals (see below) became more useful as I became more experienced at Land Rover maintenance.

Official Land Rover Parts Catalogues

Along with the workshop manuals (see below) the parts catalogues are invaluable. When I owned a Series 3 109" I found the parts catalogue essential for identifying parts for ordering from suppliers. The exploded parts diagrams are also useful when trying to assemble to disassemble a particular assemblage.
