Revised For 2014--Additional Material Added.

All pages are scanned copies of the original, saved in .jpg format and should be able to be read with any paint/photo package.
Ideally a slide show type of program as in Windows XP will speed up the search.
If you are patient and systematic in searching you can locate any part required. Just like microfiche reader!
If you know the part number but are unsure where it is located then try the Alphabetical Listings & Index-- This lists all parts contained in the book in numerical sequence.
Text pages are titled thus-- MA1text
Picture pages (exploded views)are titled thus-- MA1-A1 (ie plate A1 to correspond with text page MA1)
Brackets --(MA1-A1)-- are used simply to keep the page lists within files in sequence when pages run to over 9.

Pages within the files are numbered thus--MA3text --is a page of text where the part numbers are located-- item numbers on these pages link to the parts in exploded views.
(MA3-A3) are the exploded views of parts to accompany the text pages and have the item numbers shown.
Click on (MA3-A3) for the exploded view. (MA3text) for the part numbers.
Valves are item numbers 17 & 18 on page MA3-A3. Now go to MA3text and there you have under illus no in centre column, middle of page, items 17 & 18.
