What is a service manual?
Service manuals are instruction booklets that have been prepared by the product manufacturer so as to be distributed to authorized dealers and their trained mechanics. The handbook is intended to provide these mechanics precise service, maintenance and repair information based on factory recommendations. Service manuals are the same manuals that your local marine repair shop use to fix your boat engine, as opposed to a repair manual that is more tailored for the do-it-yourselfer. It is important to note that, because service manuals are intended to be used by trained technicians, they can contain a lot of mechanical jargon which can make it difficult for a person with little knowledge in mechanics to understand.
