    Re: Fsm

    too many differences

    you will need a 1996 manual and only a 1996 manual

    Re: Fsm



    '96 had the same body as '94 & '95, but a different engine.

    i don't think that's correct basscat

    it's one book from e/k and the other book is the d (fleetwood) manual

    this one looks correct though

    bit more expensive but it's the right thing

    and of course there's the buy new option from helm http://helminc.com

    This guy is WAY over priced for a '96 manual. Hell, he's not too far off new manual prices. Wait till the auction ends and he has no takers. Them email him and offer him $50.

    Wow 95 plus shipping? I paid 35 maybe 40 and they were never used. Wait a few days/week and bet you find a much cheaper set.
    I bought a DVD with 98 manuals on it for dirt cheap also.
