Service Manual

I have a 1980 blue bird and am finding trouble locating the operators manual, anyone know any good resource into finding one? I also seem to have an electrical problem with something draining my battery if anyone know a direction of that as well.

I only find operator's manuals going back to 1997 online.

Finding any battery draw is very simple.. Connect a horn or 12 volt lite between the battery ground cable and the battery. If there is any load the lite will be on. Remove and reinstall each fuse or connection until the fault is found. Some times if there are several loads, the task can be a bit challenging. frank

A bad alternator diode can also cause a continuous drain when the engine is off, but no noticeable issues when running.
