Found this manual on eBay and was curious if it would suffice for my older 8V-71?

The information is priceless, no-doubt - but there's no paper here at all - you're paying over 30 dollars to receive 3 CD-Roms, which cost pennies to make. The seller might be paying a licence to Detriot Diesel for each CD he burns....but I bet he isn't.

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

Jeremy, that brings up a good point. Does anyone have a viable alternative?

Billy,

Search on eBay for "v71 manual" and select sort by: "price + shipping: lowest first". Plenty to choose from.

Billy -

Just an FYI - the printed shop manuals for the V71 completely take up two 3" three-ring binders.  They may still be available new from your local Detroit Diesel Allison distributor - ask at the parts counter.  Mine cost me $100 ten years ago.  They're now packed in a box somewhere in my storage unit after moving. . .

If the CDs are accurate reproductions, consider the space requirements, and the fact that you can print out the pages you need for the project you're working on, w/o making a greasy mess of your hard copies.  Plus, when you're done, you can recycle the used paper.

FWIW & HTH. . .

I found at least four on ebay motors a year or two ago for pretty decent prices.

A good set of manuals for a 8v71 from DD will be in the 300 to 400 dollar range with all the service bulletins over the  years,the Cd's are ok but lots missing on those

good luck
