WTB '71 bus owners manual

If anybody's got a spare (I had one, but gave it away), I would like to take it off your hands. My copy has gone missing.

Check with Ken@thebusco.com as he has a box of good owners manuals for decent prices. Thats where I found mine including the westy book.

That address doesn't seem to be working for me. I got an "undeliverable mail" message, and I can't connect to www.thebusco.com ... I wonder if the site is defunct.

Thanks. The web site worked for me this time, and the email link is kenm, not ken. I've emailed him, and we'll see what's what.

There's a very large collection of VW owner's manuals available for download at http:// www.thesamba.com/vw/
Many are even available in a variety of languages. They're under the "Technical" menu on the top bar. Most seem to be
available as a single PDF file or a zipped collection of pages in JPEG format.

I finally found one in decent shape from a local VW parts salvager. But thanks for the leads, folks.
