Sacramento, California: Self Published, 1960. Paper covers, binder . BINDING/CONDITION: heavy paper covers with post-and-screw binding; the covers are in Good condition; all contents Very Good; no markings. This is a bound collection, with tabbed, printed dividers, probably to be assembled, over time, by the user from material issued by the aircraft supply business known as Sacramento Sky Ranch.

The section for Carburetors includes instruction manuals for several different models of Marvel-Schebler aircraft carburetors. The section on magnetos has a great deal of material on Bendix and Case aircraft magnetos: overhaul instructions, parts catalogs, etc, and service bulletins. The Modifications section primarily contains Lycoming Service Instructions. The 1960 date I use here is taken from the various service bulletins. The Sacramento Sky Ra ... Read more
