There are many Deuce TM's listed on this site and elsewhere, some of which appear to overlap in topic and content, some of which are newer than others. I made a little list of the TM's I had and how they relate to each-other and thought I'd post it up. Forgive if this info is posted elsewhere, but did not find it when I looked.

So it would look like the 9-2320-361 manuals from Aug 2006 (4 of them) are the most current for all A2 models, and the superseded versions should be referenced for only Original or A1 models.

That being said, I would presume there is some info in the older versions which are still valuable which have been omitted or dumbed down in the newer versions, but dont know enough to confirm.

In my opinion the older manuals are much better . They went into greater detail in how things worked and had better pictures and diagrams showing how to fix things. The problem is finding them. There are plenty of "reprints" out there, but the pictures never copy well.
