Buy the DVD version which is cheaper...

Personally, I would rather pay for support than be left out in the cold. The choice is yours.

I guess this went over my feeble old head. I couldn't find a DVD on jensale's. Can you direct me to the site that has it?
Thanks,
Mike

Sorry if that sounded a bit harsh. :angel: There is has been a fair bit of bashing on various forums about the cost of owning/maintaining a JD machine. My response had some of that discussion in mind.

The other thing that shaped my initial response is the fact that I have several old Plymouths that are not supported by aftermarket sources. Working with JD stuff does not present the frustration that working with my old Plymouths do and that is a good thing in my book.

It really sounds like the DVD version would be a better option for you and would be cheaper. :thumbs:

Have bought several MM mans from them and am happy with all of them. Generally in reprints the photos aren't so clear, but they do better on those than most. Usually need to get owner's, parts and sometimes service all diff mans. Go to Yesterday's tractors and they sell same book, same printer, some cheaper. Most are still $29.95 or close. Not aware of CD's there, unless that is new. Always tons on ebay various prices. JD is a little fussier on letting manuals be printed by other people and makes them a little harder to find as reprints.

Thanks to you both! I finally found the CD last night and it should be on the way.
