Today I have suddenly realized what a glut of manuals I have lying around. I was digging through my computer looking for a manual for a Kohler KV161 today, and then I dug around my shelves through other manuals. Then I realized I was nearly buried in my own collection.
I admit it, I really like the old paper books. I collect them.
I am going to throw out a general inventory and I would like to hear from all you good folks as to what you want me to make a priority to get scanned and posted for us all to use.
On engines I have Tecumseh dealer books, Lauson, Power Products, Wisconsin manuals, Wisconsin operators books, Clinton (of course), Briggs, REO, Fuji, Continental, Onan, Jacobsen some older Kohler and Pincor. Those are all dealer manuals. I also have some small literature on probably any other brand I didn't list.
On engine accessories I have dealer books for REPCO (Phelon) magnetos, Wico magnetos, Fairbanks Morse magnetos, Tillotson carburetors, Marvel Schebler carburetors, Zenith carburetors, Carter carburetors, Fairbanks Morse recoil starters, Delco Remy electrical, Auto Lite electrical, and other miscellaneous odds and ends.
On tractors I have a complete set of Cub Cadet parts lists and some service books, early small MTD junk, a complete Allis Chalmers GT parts and service manual, Simplicity service manual, Gilson tractors, Case tractors,
For other junk, I have anything for Toro you would ever want to know, from reel mowers to light tractors. I have dealer manuals for REO mowers, Clinton chainsaws, Eclipse reel mowers, Jacobsen mowers, Clinton outboards, and a few other miscellaneous binders that I have never even cataloged.
This is prime time busy time for Old Paths Equipment, so don't expect anything instantaneous from me. However, I am taking requests for getting some of these scanned and preserved. Help me prioritize!
