Never had this problem with B-Body manuals (though they did contain plenty of typos which were mostly corrected in the supplement book). Printed books last forever. Online accounts do not.
So it's not worth $20 to look for your missing info or to look at the Series2 Holden info which may be useful.
I give up.

Thanks for the info nonetheless. Guess I'm just a little bitter about how much the Helm books cost and disappointed that they weren't complete. Not your fault, just venting. Good to know there's another alternative and I may use it in the future.

Have you thought about contacting Helms and complaining?

Maybe they will get you the missing documentation...

Later,

Hi Chris,
Pretty rough week losing Charlie to cancer. I'm glad I was able to get things done for his family in the final few days...it all happened in a blur.

I know, I had no idea how bad it had gotten until Ray called me :( Was glad to be able to talk to Wendy a bit though man I can't believe he's gone.
