I have been delaying moving from my 84 GL to a legacy because I am a total repair rookie and have one of those Mohn Muir Idiot's Guide to Subaru repair for 75-88 models. I get lost reading a Haynes or Chilton Manual half way though the process... are there any better repair books out there...like a John Muir gtype of guide for Legacy?

The HTKYSAF by Muir is great. But there is nothing like it for a legacy, chilton and haynes are crap, get a FSM they are $$$ but worth every penny if you do the work yourself.

I've always been afraid that the FSM would be to complex for the less experienced among us. I consider a brake job is the upper limit of my mechanical skill...would I understand what was going on in the FSM?
