Which Manual Do I Need?
There are 3 main manual types, each with a specific purpose. Some manuals combine manual types (i.e. Parts + Operators, etc.), but the basic function of the manual types remain the same.
|Service Manual (SVC) - The service manual (AKA shop manual or repair manual) tells you how to take the tractor apart, fix it, and put it back together. It is written in the language of a mechanic and may include valuable detailed information such as specifications, torques, ranges, etc. If you are serious about repairs or restoration, you need the service manual.|
|Parts Manual (PTS) - The parts manual has exploded views of all parts on the tractor, giving great detail on assembly and disassembly. It also includes a guide for ordering parts. It picks up where service manuals leave off. If you do your own repairs, you need the parts manual.|
|Operators Manual (OPT) - The operators manual (AKA owners manual) came with the tractor. It gives the owner/operator instructions, shift patterns, capacities (anti freeze, crankcase, etc.) and adjustment procedures (brakes, clutch, etc.). This is a critical tool for operating and maintaining your tractor.|
