Reply to "Where are these Manusta parts drawings from?"

The question of Owners Manuals and Factory Parts Lists were the subject of two large articles in this month's POCA Newsletter. The individual files in question are not large: the Mangusta Owners Manual is only 15 pages and 252Kb, and the Mangusta Parts List is 139 pgs & 4.5 meg, both as pdf files. Both, as well as tons more DeTomaso info, are downloadable for members 24/7 from the POCA Web Site at www.poca.com. Sign in and go to the Tech Archives.

Lee, the folder of Mangusta stuff I got decades ago with my basket case 'goose 8MA0760, has 118 pgs not including blanks, copied both sides, but did not have the four cartoonish shots you show. Someone 'edited' some of my sheets with english translations. The sheets are 8-3/4" x 14-3/4"- probably a std Euro paper size. I wish there'd been a description of all the unmarked toggle switch functions in mine somewhere. The for-sale spiral-bound parts book from Larry Stock has 139 pgs- more than either of our bundles. Dunno what his source was.

JMM3, from what I've seen of most factory paperwork, they were not treated lovingly during their 50 yrs of storage. All seem to be Euro sheet sizes and need hours of intense Adobe Photoshop work to be even legible... in Italian! I spent months scanning what POCA is giving away, and literally wore out one scanner. You could send me a few shots off-line and I'll tell you whether they are already on the site. Or you could bring them along to the upcoming Fun Rally in Reno & I'll buy you a drink.
