Metropolitan (Austin UK & Nash USA) Factory Workshop Manual
Author: Floyd Clymer
VP Book ID: 19685
Dimensions: 8 1/4" x 11"
Description: 232 pages, 493 illustrations, size 8.25 x 11 inches, published in 2009. A reproduction of the Floyd Clymer Factory Workshop Manual, as published in Clymer’s Metropolitan Owners Handbook, for the 1954-1962 Austin/Nash/American Motors Metropolitan.
When Clymer published the Metropolitan Owners Handbook he had to reduce the overall size of the workshop manual to fit his 5 x 8 inch book size. This reduction in size resulted in extremely small images and text. The VelocePress edition has been restored to the original print size which is more than 200% larger than the Clymer publication and consequently, much easier to read! A profusely illustrated manual that includes all of the data you would expect from a factory publication for the repair and overhaul of all major and minor mechanical and electrical components. There are separate sections that deal with the repair and overhaul procedures for the engine, cooling system, carburetion, exhaust system, clutch, A & B series transmission, shifting system, brakes and wheels, hubs and drums, rear axle, drive shaft, front suspension, steering gear, weather eye system, a detailed electrical service section plus an exhaustive 62 page body section that deals with all facets of the bodywork including the correct procedure for fitting replacement panels! This is a - must have - reference for any Metropolitan enthusiast and would certainly assist in helping any potential purchaser better understand the inner workings prior to purchasing one of these classic automobiles. Out-of-print and unavailable for many years, this book is highly sought after on the secondary market and we are pleased to be able to offer this reproduction as a service to all Metropolitan enthusiasts worldwide.
