While I use the calder book and others, I find invaluable the owners manual of each component. Most, but not all, manufacturers have pretty good detailed service and repair manuals for their gear. I needed to adjust the hz on my genset. Only the Westerbeake manual could tell me the specific way to adjust THAT genset. Granted, I learned about the need for proper hz from Calder, but didn't learn HOW to get it right.
Most manufacturers, but not all, post their manuals on-line. There are various sources out there for discontinued stuff too, you have to dig for it.
Once you find it, print it out. You may need the info when internet access isn't available, or the manufacturer might disapear for some reason. There are also third party manuals for some stuff like outboard motors.

make sure you have all your manuals on hand.
