Where to find maintenance manuals. DT466/MT643

Does anyone know a good source for maintenance manuals? I am looking for the books on the IH DT466 and the Allison MT 643 transmission. I have found the DT 466 manual for $75.00, that seems a bit high. I haven't found the transmission manual as of yet.

While not a maintenance manual, Allison has the owner/operators manuals available for free online as well as many other resources.

I'm just jealous that you have a DT466/MT643 combo! Nice find!

What did the DT466 and MT643 come in originally? Makes. Models. Years.


EDIT: Disregard, I found some:

1992 Bluebird School Bus DT466 diesel MT643
1999, International, 4900, Non, International DT 466, MT643
1998 International 4700 International DT466E 175
1995 IHC THOMAS 65+ D DSL DT466 AUTO AIR
1994 IHC THOMAS 65 D DSL DT466 AUTO AIR
1993 IHC BLUEBIRD 71 D DSL DT466 MT643 AIR
1991 IHC BLUEBIRD 71 D DSL DT466 MT643 AIR
1990 IHC WAYNE 72 D DSL DT466 AUTO AIR


Curious. What do you have? What's 466E? Electronic...

Nice offer, thanks.

I am looking for maintenance information. Filters, fluids, millage vs. fluid/filter changes, visual inspections anything an owner/operator needs to know about proper maintenance, troubleshooting and exterior parts that may be replaced on the road or at home. I also have been watching Ebay, the 643 manuals are fair priced at around $20.00. I figured maybe instead of purchasing a 643 manual I might in the future just ask the above questions here. However a comprehensive troubleshooting section would likely be handy to have so I will do as you did and pick one up off of Ebay this winter while the bus sits.

I will also need to find the DT 466 manual as I do want to do some adjusting addressing the governor and horsepower. The fellow from the school district said the engine was dialed in at 210 horsepower, I would like to adjust it up to 250 HP. I believe this will make driving the vehicle more enjoyable and I do not believe I will ever put enough miles on the bus to excessively wear the engine . From what I have read I think it's fuel economy can be improved 2 to 3 miles per gallon and I would also enjoy the increase in performance while not running with the pedal on the floor. I would like to find out if I may be able to do these adjustments myself without hiring a mechanic. And I will need maintenance and troubleshooting information for the engine as well.
