I see that the Series 12 book includes a "Mechanics Instructions" section. Is this like the Repairs and Adjustments section of the Series 11 book, or more detailed in terms of how to do xxxxx


Is there a Series 11 "workshop manual" that might describe such things are removing the engine, or dismantling the gearbox or other such mechanical operations?

The instructions in the S-12 manual are similar to those in the S-11 Manual and will get you down to the "grinding-valve" or "setting the timing gear" level but a detailed workshop manual in the modern sense was not issued by the factory. There is a separate "Troubleshooter's" book for S-9/S-10 and a "Hints and Suggestion" for 1903 to Series-1. The Parts books will let you find the numbers to look up factory drawings that the Club has.
