Looks like a classic chronological filling system.
Old stuff on the bottom, newest stuff on top!

Very nice, Don.  I tell you something I want, that Clinton chainsaw manual.  I didn't know they made a special manual for them.  To believe that I have 3 Clinton dealer manuals and never seen a Clinton chainsaw dealer's binder.   :mad2: 


I have seen a dozen dealer manuals on eBay for engines, but nothing else.  I was told there was a separate manual for outboards, too, but I've never seen one of those either.   I have bits and pieces of the chainsaw model IPLs and info, but nothing like that. 


My collection of dealer manuals keeps growing.  I bought some more on eBay just today.  :D 


2 Tecumseh, one from the 1960's with complete IPLs before Tecumseh started dropping support of the early Tecumseh branded equipment.  The second has a plastic cover from the late 80's.

1 Set of Briggs that someone delivered awhile back.  :thumbs:  Thanks again for those.  All I need to be complete is the alpha and single digit series. 

2 Wisconsin dealer manuals.  One I paid far too much for on eBay, first one I had seen in a long time.  The second one was posted the day after I won the first one, for about 1/4 of the price I paid for the first one.  I bought just because I was mad at myself.  And the cover looked much nicer with the "More HP Hours" logo.  The first one's cover was orange. 

1 Phelon magneto manual.

1 Fairbanks Morse magneto manual

1 Power Products / Lauson engine manual.  That is my pride and joy right now.  I am working on scanning it.  Boy was I happy to find one.  They are hard to get in decent shape.  My copy was produced by Tecumseh right before Tecumseh dropped the Lauson/PP name and redid the whole manual.  The service info for Power Products still shows their address.

I think the chainsaw manual in the middle (second pic) should go on the bottom for a while........  (  U  )

That there is a pile of info!

I have scanned most of the stuff I have. There have been a few I haven't, but they are mostly duplicates of the ones already here.

Always on the hunt for more tho :D

99% of what I have is on the computer. That folder now has over 1450 files in it. Some may be duplicates, though.
