John Dingell. Longest ever serving Congressman. Succeeded by his wife Debbie. I was kind of skeptical about such shennanigans, but I'm a convert. Debbie Does Good. Pologirl and I heard her speak at the first Women's march here in AA and she was impressive. Wasn't a citizen with voting rights when john was our Rep, but locals and respected friends are mourning.

If you've ever toiled within or beneath your car with spanner and Haynes Manual to hand, you'll be sorry to hear of the death of John Haynes.

John H Haynes OBE dies aged 80: obituary to the founder of Haynes Publishing Group and Haynes International Motor Museum.

He would always greet others with 'his infectious warmth and engaging, enthusiastic boyish smile'

The death has been announced today (February 11) of the creator of the Haynes Manual and founder of a publishing empire and motor museum.

The Haynes International Motor Museum is situated at Sparkford, Yeovil which for many years has been the main base for Haynes publishing.

The company has paid tribute to its founder, saying he will be "missed enormously" and has issued an obituary.

A spokesman for Haynes said: "It is with great sadness that we announce the death of John H Haynes OBE, the creator of the famous Haynes Manual, founder of the Haynes Publishing Group PLC and the Haynes International Motor Museum.

"John passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on the evening of Friday February 8, aged 80, after a short illness.

"John was a kind, generous, loving and devoted husband, brother, father and grandfather, who will be missed enormously.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Annette, his brother David and sister Mary, his sons J and Chris and their families."

I've got about a dozen Haynes Manuals including, Heathrow Airport, The Moon, Apollo 11, Airbus A380, D-Day, London Underground, Flying Scotsman and the Cold War.

Strangely I don't appear to have the VW Passat 1988-96 edition.

Engine Removal

Step 1. Disconnect all wires, hoses, and electronic connections.
Step 2. Remove the bolts from the motor mount(s).
Step 3. Remove the engine.

Installation is the reverse of removal.
Yeah, loved those Haynes manuals.

Who needs pictures when you have a Haynes manual?

It comes with pictures.
