A Shop Manual for a Formula Plus XTC E (3780)?

I've been searching all over the Interwebs and can't find a Bombardier shop manual for my 1992 Ski Doo Formula Plus XTC E (model 3780). I'd take a greased-up original, a legibile photocopy, or a digitized scan. Nothing!

(Not interested in the crummy Clymer stuff or the pirated electronic scans sold online.)

This makes me wonder if there never was a 1992 shop manual for this line? Maybe they just issued a few updates to the 1991 documentation?

Thanks for any info,

Ken

Thanks for your response.

I'm not sure which manuals link you're referring to. Is there a link to a 1992 Ski Doo shop manual that I've missed?

I've used the Clymer manual for years, VERY accurate. Covers just the formula sleds too. I think I've seen only 3 factory manuals on eBay since eBay was started.

Thanks, but following all those links still does not lead to the official 1992 Ski Doo shop manual I'm looking for.

I have to conclude there wasn't one... maybe they just issued updates to the 1991 manual.

Like I said, I've seen factory manuals on eBay before.

Thanks, I'm looking for a 1992 manual, not 1994.

There are similarities from 1992 to 1994 but they wouldn't be identical.
