I'm looking for a service manual for my 1989 Bluebird All American 8.3 Cummins and Alison MT643. Can anyone assist me here?

Not cheap, but you can get them from any Cummins dealer. And every once in a while, they show up on Ebay at a discount.

Here's where my inexperience shows... could I settle with another year? For example, if a 1988 or 90' model manual comes available should I jump on it?

I think I've come across central states bus sales before. They don't have anything available for older models... anything that predates 97'.... at least I can't find it. I'll call them.

Thanks Steve!

I have the shop manual for the cta 8.3 on my laptop in pdf. I'll try to remember to share it tomorrow night when I get access. I'm very busy at work this week so I might forget. Send me a pm tomorrow night if I don't get to you first and remind me.
