Ebay does have many style manuals but many bus makers do not have a shop manual. My Blue Bird manual has only very basic information about the vehicle and very little information about any repair. In the very small brochure that came with bus, was a wiring drawing and basic maintenance. The wiring is the same for many models and years. Best place to get printed information is from any net BB, forum, other bus owners, bus selling companies. The engine information usually comes from the maker. Info about each part maker is more easily available. A good patient truck parts place will often help with bus parts. International has a good parts reference program. Take the ID or VIN to a Int dealer and they will usually printout a build sheet. There are many repair manuals for engines and trans and rear axles in special repair manuals. Some times some shops will allow copies of some shop manual pages. Some salvage yards have good resources for parts numbers and information. Even some school districts will help for a few dollars to a mechanic at lunch time. Frank
Thanks Frank. Yeah I'm starting to realize that I don't think there was a single service manual for Thomas. Or even Blue Bird for that matter. I think all that is available is "owner operator maintenance manual", axles and wiring schematics.
