Dinosaurs were no good at Knots. Their arms were too short. Hells told me so and I believe him because he was there.

Books about dinosaurs could tie this into a perfect knot,,or not.

I keep a 25th edition. Full size. Large print. Good for arm curls and bench presses. Takes up half a drawer in my Kennedy roller box!

Possibly the most complete single volume on things mechanical known to man.

All the basics and background. They would be a very good source for you, and easier to use than Machinery's Handbook.

Look in the used textbook section.
Machine Tools and Machining Practices, Vol.1 & 2
White, Neely, Kibbe, Meyer,,,,copyright 1977
soo many choics:

I'm tempted to pick up a copy of Machinery's Handbook just because it looks so cool, despite the grammatically weird title. Guess it's just because I'm uninitiated... I am not in any way a machinist or engineer unless you count my N gauge train set.

Along the same lines to, you who do your own wrenching, is there a bible of motorcycle mechanics that you feel is essential?

Worked on my own VWs back in the 70's including engine rebuilds, etc. all with just the idiot's book. In other words, I know just enough to be a real danger to the ongoing mechanical fitness of my bikes should I choose to really get into the guts and do valve adjustments, brake pad replacement, or anything else beyond mounting farkles and changing tires. I find electrical stuff really mystifying beyond the positive/negative and complete circuit stuff.

So, any suggestions as to the generic reference book or two that I absolutely should have on my shelf?

Oh, and just for form, BUMP.

The "Essential Guide to Motorcycle Maintainence" by Zimmerman has been pretty good to me for generic motorcycle advice. Too many variables to cover specific procedures on a given bike, but the broad explanations of some things has helped this noob.

Just noticed I had "Big Sid's Vincati", Biberman, sitting on my book shelf right next to it. It's a great wrenchin read for a rainy winter day. Not a "How To" story as much as a father-son story, but a great motorcycle read none the less.

Forgot to mention I do have the Whitehorse motorcycle maintenance book. IMHO, mostly a waste of paper...

John Muir's Step by Step Repair Manual for the complete idiot is the best repair manual I have ever owned...........................and yes I wish they had books like that for every bike/vehicle I own.
