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!

Scanning is really winter time work. Only on R&R days in the good weather should you think about the scanning. The old expression

"make hay while the sun shines" applies to most of us. Thanks for your generosity. I hope that they are stored in a fire proof container. Good Luck, Rick

Is there a usage list by carb number for the Tillotsons and Zeniths? The ASECC has a list of early tillotson usage but ends in late 30's or early 40s. I find myself referring to that list a lot and sometimes it doesn't have the info I need. Seems real useful as a reference tool.

If your manual collection is anything like your garage you will need to hire a fill time scanner for a couple of years to get them all done.

I don't see this one listed, but it's hiding in your library somewhere.

I know I have usage information for the Tillotsons.  In my book, it is mixed into the parts lists.  Until I get it done, if there is something you need crossed, let me know.  :thumbs:  

 

My Zenith book has an application list in it as well.  That is on the short list to be scanned since I am wearing out the book turning to it all the time. 

 

I don't see this one listed, but it's hiding in your library somewhere.

I'll make sure I scan it for you.  I know you need all the help you can get.

You may have.  Last I heard, it was last seen at Uncle Willie's.

You are right on all that, Rick.  I am planning to get a local guy who does this kind of thing for a living to do it for me.  He is somewhat of an antique enthusiast himself, so he was pretty excited to be able to get his paws all over my books.  I am so worn out by winter that scanning books is the last thing on my ragged mind.

 

Toro rpower handle stuff would be nice when you get time.

 

I do have that, Alan.  I remember seeing owner's and parts lists.
