Looking for service manuals

Hello,
I just became the proud owner of a 1984 Blue Bird All American. 40' Diesel pusher in very nice condition. I want to keep it that way, so I am trying to find service or repair manuals for it.
Any suggestions?

Thanks

Re: Looking for service manuals

That would be a big help. As soon as i figure out how to put up pics, I'll get them on. Mine has a 3208 CAT motor so I don't think the cummins material will help. Send me info on how to send you some money @ jeffrey210@centurytel.net and I'll get it off to you.
Thanks!!

Re: Looking for service manuals

Update!

I called the school district where the bus originally came from and talked to the mechinic. He said they were getting ready to get rid of (throw away!!!) all the manuals and paperwork on my bus, but if I wanted it, come on down and I can have it all !!!

Going there on Monday morning to see what I can scrounge up.

Re: Looking for service manuals

Imagine your luck!! I just stumbled across this this morning.
a treasure trove of info for both Bluebird's (technically Wanderlodges) and for the CAT 3208 in general

Re: Looking for service manuals

SCORE! I went to the school district garage where my bus hauled kids, and they gave me a library! I have parts manual, chassis lube manual, all maintenance records for bus since new, a level one service manual for the CAT motor, and a bunch ov repair parts he will no longer need. (Complete bearing set for front end, headlight switch... and a rebuilt hyd motor that drives the coolant fan $500 at the parts store.

When looking for sources, don't forget the obvious ones.
