Corporate Name: Haynes Publishing Group

A brand of automotive shop manuals intended for the "do-it-yourself" automobile owner started with the publication of a manual for the Austin-Healey Sprite in 1965.

History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Haynes Manual page on 12 July 2016, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Haynes Owner's Workshop Manuals (commonly known as simply Haynes Manuals) are a series of practical manuals from the Haynes Publishing Group (LSE: HYNS) aimed at DIY enthusiasts not really for professional garage mechanics because the manuals lack the depth of coverage on particular vehicles or problems. The series primarily focuses upon the maintenance and repair of automotive vehicles, covering a wide range of makes and models (300 models of car and 130 models of motorcycle), but it also includes manuals in the same style for domestic appliances and personal computers, digital photography, model railways, men and babies, sex, and women. The last four were made slightly tongue in cheek, but have proved very popular.

The Haynes manuals are named after John Haynes, OBE. In 1956, when he was at school, he wrote and published a book on building a 'special' based on the Austin 7, and wrote two further books while performing national service in the Royal Air Force. Haynes Publishing was founded in 1960 and the first manual actually entitled "Haynes Owners Workshop Manual", for the Austin-Healey Sprite, was published in 1965.

Many Haynes Manuals bear a cover illustration of a cutaway view technical drawing of the vehicle, hand-drawn by Terry Davey, and they bear his signature.

In 2013, Haynes acquired Clymer repair manuals from Penton Media.

The automotive vehicle manuals are based upon taking apart and putting together a vehicle. The cover of each manual states: "based on a complete stripdown and rebuild". Each section has step-by-step instructions with diagrams and photographs of an actual stripdown or rebuild.
