+356

Probably the most useful 356 book I have (I'm pretty good with electric stuff, but would never try to crack an engine case open or handle any engine maintenance and repair except the really simple stuff). This book has beautiful color coded wiring diagrams for the entire car, as well as many, many pages of troubleshooting tips.

What are you defining as no electrical? If nothing in the car has power then I would start with battery cables including checking the ground connections. If you have car power but the engine doesn't turn I would start with the ignition, especially the wires that plug in the back, and the starter connections.
