Defender maintenance primers and resources

Hey Folks,
I pulled the trigger on a 1986 5 door 110 2.5 NA! What books, manuals, or guides would you recommend to add to my library to assist in the maintenance of and gradual restoration of my new truck? I am proficient at turning a wrench and have a fair amount of experience repairing and restoring motorcycles... I say this to give you context for the level of reading/repair I'm capable of following.

Thanks! - Dave

You will be the best customer at the auto craft shop. We are in Orlando if you need anything. I retired from Benning, don't miss that place much.

Everything you need can be downloaded TM wise.

You can pick up some workshop manuals that can help. You can also search this forum if you get in a jam on something. You can also join a local club that can be a big help.

So to be more specific, is th Haynes manual sufficient? Is there an original Lamd Rover manual that is good?

Google is your friend in this case - the factory service manuals are all over the place.

I'd tell you to find out from the PO when the timing belt was last done.
