1949EL - Must have manuals


Post by thsmith » Sun Oct 10, 2004 2:19 am

Okay, I know this is a loaded question and ambigious at best, but I have never been shy about asking questions.

I am interested in opinions from people who know or own a 1949 pan and what manuals are a must for this year pan.

I have my own list I have started but have not purchased yet. If you see a must have or don't bother I would be interested to hear. I consider the Service manual a most as I had one but it went with my 57 when I sold it. 9 years later I find myself needing another one. My 49EL is pretty close to being right but I want to know myself what nut, bolt, washer, spring, plating is not right, not so much to make it right but just to know.

This is all Vintage Twins fault I am asking ;-}. I know I need go sources of information for my own investigation but there a lot of choices out there.
