trans pictorials

Your right in searching Autopress or BENTLEY manuals as they are the only ones that I have ever found with decent exploded viewsof the ribcase trans.

The ones I have came from England a few years ago via e-mail and were in many sheets of paper for one page and was a real cut/past/glue deal so as to get a full sheet.

I still have these and refer to them each trans apart as they show the balls, pegs and springs correctly and not just fly droppings on the paper.

IF you cant find the manuals or get someone to copy them let me know and I will see if I can photocopy and mail to you but it's a chore to unfold each page and copy parts of it.

Just came across the book you may be looking for on eBay. The URL to the auction is:

If for some reason the link above doesn't work, go to eBay Motors and search for item number 120036254558.

Starting bid is only $1.00.

Hope this helps!

The best book I have is one that came with my car (so many years ago). It's a small green paperback "Clymer" manual...very good--kind of a "blend" between a Bently manual and a Haynes manual. It even has a section on how to install a Judson in it.

My is VERY shopworn, with the pages coming out. I've looked for a replacement, but have NEVER seen another copy...

Need to check eBay at some point...

I picked up one of those Clymer manuals last year, after I found one for my old TR4. I just did a search for it on Google, and a used book seller had one in stock. It was in pretty good condition. Seems to lift quite a bit directly from the factory manual. It lives in my car as my road manual.

Believe it or not, I bought one of the Clymer manuals new back in the late 1960's (showing my age a little here) and it is a great book. It is largely a reprint of the original BMC Workshop Manual, which I am fortunate to also have a copy of.

I also have a copy of it and ended-up copying it onto the computer. I have CD copies of it if anyone wants one (they are hard to get so I thought that this would be good). I will give them away to anyone who wants one, this eliminates the problem of copyright (no money).
If you want one give me (PM is best) your address and I'll send one.
