Default FREE MANUALS: Tucker, Kristi, Snow Trac, Thiokol, LMC, Bombi, Raidtrac

I have several different threads posted here that say we give away free manuals for several different brands/models of snowcats. Each thread was dedicated to that specific model, and I would copy the manual requested onto a CD-Rom and mail it.

I am NOT going to do that anymore!!!

I will still give away FREE MANUALS for all the machines. . .
All the manuals we have are now available here for free download >>> http://www.goldcordmine.com/manuals/


So for anyone who needs a manual, you can get ALL the manuals.

The manuals are on line and available for free download:
  • 1 manual: KRISTI SNOWCAT KT2/KT3 with member supplied suppliments & drawings
  • Several manuals SNOW TRAC, TRAC MASTER, SNOW MASTER. Included are both PARTS and OPERATORS manuals from 5 or 6 different years.
  • 1 manual: Aktiv Trac (same manufacturer as SNOW TRAC but different machine)
  • 1 manual: TUCKER 222 KITTEN
  • 1 manual: TUCKER 300-900 series pontoon models
  • 1 manual: TUCKER 400 series models
  • 1 manual: TUCKER 1300/1400/1500 series manual (model year 1975)
  • 1 manual: CUSHMAN Trackster
  • 1 manual: Thiokol 1404
Again, these manuals are free to any member who wants one, in exchange for a manual we at the Forums simply ask that you contribute to the Forums by posting your projects, photos, questions or whatever else you have. It should also be noted that we can only supply these manuals because people have shared them with us. If you have a manual (for any old brand) that you can lend us, we will digitize it and return it, or if you can send us a digital copy, then we will gladly add your manual to our list of manuals that we provide. You will notice we do not yet have any manuals for popular machines like the Thiokol IMP, Super IMP or Spryte. Nor we we have manuals for Bombardier Bombi or other models.

If you can help, please send me an email or a Private Message.

The first series of DVD disks are now complete. I made up 4 disks this morning and already got requests for 3 of them. I guess I should get started on some more


Please notice there are no graphics for THIOKOL or BOMBARDIER machines on the disk. That is because we don't have any manuals and could certainly use some copies of those manuals. Imp, Super Imp, Spryte, Bombi (BR series machines) and J5s seem to be very common here on the ForumsForums website.

Well it looks like we will be adding some more manuals to our library. Thanks to the generosity of our membership, I've gotten PMs from folks who will be providing the following manuals. Some of the manuals will be partial manuals, some will be complete but it looks like we may soon be able to give away these manuals too!

If all goes well, I should receive these manuals over the next week or two. Each will be digitized and returned to the owner. Then the manuals will be added to the new DVD disk that we distribute. I'd hope that by mid-February all this work will be done.

Bombardier:
  • BR100+
  • Bombardier BR Parts List
  • B-12 Snow Bus
LMC:
  • 1200
  • 1500
VMC:
  • RT-01
Thiokol:
  • 1404

Well I'm hoping to have the Bombi manuals ready in 1 week. I've got some LMC 1200 and 1500 manuals that are due soon too. I know those are VERY THICK manuals so I will probably not copy the entire manuals (omitting engine and other 'outside supplier' areas). But with any luck, by the end of January the Bombi, LMC 1200 and LMC 1500 manuals should be added. We'll see what else arrives and we'll see how thick they are before I can make any other projections. It can take a few days to scan a manual and then another good bit of time to convert it into a properly sequenced PDF file.

Just arrived in the mail today, a manual for a THIOKOL 1404

I also have manuals that arrived for a VMC and a couple LMC machines!

We are busy at work and I'm a little behind in getting all these scanned, but I will get them back to everyone who as sent them to me as quickly as possible. I hope you don't mind a little bit of a delay. These manuals will really round out our collection with manuals for many of the most popular machines.

I just got done with the Bombardier manuals (there are 2). We now have the operators manual and the parts manual for a Bombardier BR100+ Bill Harnish was kind enough to provide these.

This afternoon we'll be starting on a Thiokol 1404 Imp manual and then a Cushman Trackster will come after that. Both lent to us by Byron Miller. He also sent a bunch of other stuff that I'm sorting through and will get working on as best I can.

When I'm done with these then I have some LMC manuals that Bill provided that we will get started on digitizing.

Send me a Private Message (called a PM for short) with your mailing address and I'll get one made up and put in the mail to you early next week.

To use the PM function, go to the upper right hand corner of your screen and look for "Private Messages" and click on that. It will take you to a page where you can read or send PMs. The other option is to click on my name and then select the option to send me a PM.

We just added another service manual to the list.

Cushman TRACKSTER

I have to admit to being a bit overwhelmed with manuals right now. I've also gotten a Thiokol 1404 manual scanned, but the pages are out of order It will take me a little time to get those into sequence. Sorry this is all taking so long. For those of you who have sent me manuals, they are safe and sound and I will get them back to you ASAP. I just find that this newest batch of manuals is thicker than most of the previous manuals and the process of scanning and sorting is taking longer than expected.

Well the pile of manuals is just getting deeper

Today in the mail I received a complete manual that appears to cover both the Bombardier B12 and the C18 snow bus

Honestly I am buried under the latest round of manuals and hope to get a Thiokol 1404 manual completed this weekend. It is scanned but out of sequence so I have to manually sort the pages. After that I will start scanning more manuals.

When I get manuals, even if they have engine manuals, I do not copy the engine manuals. There are two reasons, one is that the engine manuals are usually very long. Two is that there are usually (but not always) other sources for engine information. If you know the year range that engine was produced then you may be able to pick up a Chilton's manual for Chrysler cars or trucks that also used that engine. Chilton's manuals are easy to find at large booksellers and from Amazon.com.
