you would probably be better off getting a good shop manual, as you don't have to worry about the reputation of a website. the last thing you want is a bolt broken off in a block. It is also harder to loose a shop manual than it is to loose a bookmark, and shop manuals are easier to bring to where the engine is. besides that, a shop manual for a 65 galaxy is probably one of the easiest manuals to find.

I agree. Buy a good shop manual. Once you have it you will find that it will help you hundreds of times over the life of the car. We have book shelves over flowing with manuals, and are constantly buying more. You can never have too much information.

No doubt about having too much information. Most books are online or in electronic form now anyway, which makes it take up less space, and is easier to navigate!
