Technical manuals are divided in two parts: repair and
operation and tests. Repair sections tell how to repair
the components. Operation and tests sections help you
identify the majority of routine failures quickly.
Information is organized in groups for the various
components requiring service instruction. At the
beginning of each group are summary listings of all
applicable essential tools, service equipment and tools,
other materials needed to do the job, service parts kits,
specifications, wear tolerances, and torque values.
Technical Manuals are concise guides for specific
machines. They are on-the-job guides containing only
the vital information needed for diagnosis, analysis,
testing, and repair.
Fundamental service information is available from
other sources covering basic theory of operation,
fundamentals of troubleshooting, general maintenance,
and basic type of failures and their causes.
