User guides, operator manuals & part lists

Like if this guide is helpful
Before diving in and buying a users guide, operators manual, parts list or spares book, call them what you will.
Do a thorough search on the net first. Use multiple search engines, try different wording.
Most of these manuals/books are out there in the "ether" waiting to be downloaded by you for free, just like the seller that you are looking to buy from did!! Some are on manufactures sites, some on suppliers/dealers sites others are held buy clubs/enthusiasts, the latter you may need to pay a small fee for but at least it's going to a good cause. Looking for it yourself  may take a little longer but why pay if you don't have to. Make sure you have the correct model/serial numbers before you search, they should be on the makers plate on the equipment, it makes it far easier to find the correct one. Also, some guides contain parts lists as well, if it says it does find out for sure first, don't take it for granted you could end up dissapointed. Don't get caught out and don't spend if you don't need to. Lastly, if you do find the manual/list you are after,  look up the owners club or enthusiasts site and pass on a link or a copy to help others like you. Happy searching.
