Ford Shop Tips on CD


Some of you may not be familiar with the Ford Shop Tips that were published for Ford Cars and Trucks (including Mustangs, of course!) back in the sixties and early seventies. They were a collection of technical parts and service information published by Ford Motor Company to assist service technicians. I think that it is just difficult to explain the interesting tidbits that you find in these publications. Shortcuts, tips, or tricks...whatever they are called, these articles provide invaluable information to mechanics to make repairs fast and easy. Articles are written in plain, straight-to-the-point fashion and provide simple solutions to common problems. Most of this information cannot be found anywhere else because it was developed after the publication of the shop and parts manuals. I have always collected paper copies but have never been able to find all the ones that I wanted.

Now you can get them all on a CD, just like our popular Mustang Colorized Wiring Diagrams, Mustang Shop Manuals, Ford Master Parts Catalogs, and Mustang Parts and Illustration Manuals.

Like these great CD's, our Shop Tip CD's have the following features:
Printable - Print only the pages you need.
Searchable - Search the entire set of magazines in seconds.
Zoom - Zoom in to over 1200% to see the exact details.
Licensed - Our products are approved and licensed by Ford Motor Company. Bookmarked - PDF is extensively bookmarked to locate articles in seconds.
Money Back Guarantee - We stand behind the quality of our products.
Product Security and Restrictions: Encrypted PDF - PDF file is encrypted and can only be viewed when activated.
Activation Required - Product may be activated on three (3) computers
