The original workshop manual is a must but also good, to explain the mechanical aspects of cars in general, is the AA Book Of The Car.

Have a look on auction websites and charity shops.

That I heartily agree with; many of our charity shops have shelves of old books on car maintenance or repair from the days when people did it themselves! This is one I picked up for 99p:

This one was my first purchase when I got my first Spitfire but the current price is amazing! (They should change the eBay hint at the bottom to: People who viewed this also viewed their bank balance...!)

The "Everyday Modifications for your Triumph Spitfire" is a real let-down. Most are not everyday mods but quite complicated, assuming you can find or afford the bits recommended.
