Heck I just spent $75 on one Midliner book similar in size to the ones in the big binders..  If you can get the whole mess for under $500.00, I would say you are doing good..  jojo

heck, I have 2 sets of Mack tranny manuals, plus a bunch more.  I'm only wanting $550.00 / set U.S. shipping is free... but no takers.. so I guess they will sit in my library..  They are worth much more, but I feel like i'm realistic..  I know what I pay for book's and I use them as well..  anyway... I hope you score, Bob....  Jojo

I work for Caterpillar dealer and it is nice to have a set of manuals but working there I have access to sis 2.0 any information I need is just a click away makes it easy to find anything

If your going to be a bear be a grizzly

looking at the prices listed here can sure be discouraging for me .thinking of  the stack of  Mack service manuals/ operator books , detroit diesel, cummins manuals etc i had . most of which were given away.

The only ones I have had give to me was a Cummins nta855 service manual and Detroit 60 series. I was sooo happy to get them and I cherish them like gold. It’s funny how most people don’t see the big deal and I see it like a 12 year old find his dads hustler. Haha

I was re arranging my book cabinet when I found these, I new I had them, just not this many,, hell I know I gave many of these away over the years..   It was a trip down 'Camshaft' memory lane... jojo

This was back when the cam kit was complete, lifters, eup lifters, thrust washer, the 2 stupid studs for the A/C bracket, the book, i think a tube of Mack gray RTV,  was there 12 EUP bolt's also? All in one box... maybe the RTV was handed out with each kit...   Hell I forget..  jojo
