I've beem using Helms manuals for Hondas for nearly 20 years, pretty used to the way they are laid out. Got super goofed up once though. Was helping a PO member with his 96 Lude, since I have a manual for my wifes. I was looking for the wiring ID's for the ECU, having a hell of a time finding them, even with the indexes at the beginning of a section. Finally realized, the main manual is for a 95 with an update manual for the 96. Well duh, all the OBII stuff was in the 96 update manual, since that is when it started. Thought this little story might help save someone alot of wasted time down the road.

I was going to do this. You beat me to it.
I'll make this a sticky and at some point put all the info into 1 post so you don't have to scroll down through posts by other people to check if something's been indexed.

I'm going to add more and maybe have it in a table format??? For now I'll keep adding more every now and then. It's tiring doing all this after a full day of work.
Well I have a pretty big project coming up at work but if I find the time I will look at it and send some your way also.

I need to design and build a database as my final project for my Access class. I'm going to see if the Helm would make a suitable subject. Anyone want a Helm database??? I personally have not had any problems finding things in the Helm, but if I could use my final project in this class to make something useful for people, that would be cool.
