Hi all,

I got this request from a friend of mine that is trying to assist another person:

I am the Deputy Squadron Commander for the Lake City (FL) Civil Air Patrol Squadron. CAP is a non profit org that does a lot of cool things for the nation, one of which is aerospace education. Here is our problem. Someone (And I can not at this point tell you who because I did not ask or I forgot!) has donated an old Wright 1830 engine to the Suwannee Valley CAP squadron. It's in pieces. Another company has donated the ability to clean and put it together. However, we are in need of the book for assembly. As a volunteer org, any unit’s funding is all by donations and fund raising. So going out and buying this manual for one time use does not seem like a great idea. But the aerospace education benefits for the cadets would be great.

SO...got any idea where I might find a copy or an electronic copy of how this engine goes back together?

If your not willing to post a digital manual online then maybe we can arrange for a copy of a cd to be mailed to them.

The more I learn about aircraft, the more I realize I still have to learn.
