Manuals / Schematics

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where I could get a hold of a repair manual / wiring schematics for my bus? I had the switch panel off the other day & found that previous owner(s) have jumpered & alligator clipped circuits. As yet, nothing has fried (to my knowledge) but along with having to do all the work myself, I'd at least like to have an accurate point of reference when attempting repairs. Thanx in advance for your help.

in search for manuals for my Ward, International still makes the chassis manuals but you have to order them direct from International for either $45 or $65 a piece.

Ward itself no longer prints manuals for my bus b/c it is more than 10 years old. I dont know if thomas is the same way.

So what I had to do for a wiring schematic was call Ward and have the lady there make copies of the pages with wiring schematic on them and mail them to me. That was a week ago and im still waiting on them in the mail.

It has also been suggested to find out where your bus came from and call that school district and see if they still have the old manuals lying around.

Thanks for the help! I have dreamed of having a bus, but I guess I never thought about the ramifications of actually catching that dream! Now that I've caught it, I'm finding out just how little I know about anything about it. I guess the next steps are to contact International & Thomas to see what's to be done next. Thanx again for the help!

P.S. My son loaned me his digital camera so I could get some pictures, but I can't seem to get it to work properly, so pictures will be delayed pending further camera troubleshooting (read "Son, can you show me how to work this thing!?!).
