ONLINE manuals are on 3wheelerworld.com down load it free and if you own a trike you need to be a member on here, we know way to much, this is more of an ATV site, its not dedicated to trikes.

hey Shadetree, i ment to tell you thanks for you offer but i would need a manual or some type of instructions. honestly i am not a mechanic by trade however with the right paperwork i can do allot of stuff and have done allot of work on my junk at my house. like last week i just put a clutch, rear main seal and all the other good stuff that goes along with pulling the transmission on my yota. i even put a timing chain and all that stuff on it last year.

hopefully this will give you an idea of my skill level.

guess i am trying to say that i am only as good as the instructions that i can get online hahahah

thanks again

for the third time thank you very much for your help and i am on this sight reading just about every day.
i have downloaded the manual and even printed it as well as studied it
HOWEVER MY POST ASKED FOR A PERSONAL WRITE UP DUDE
i experience is that with manuals like the Haynes Manual they can get you in more trouble than they can help.

and i have found that in some cases you can find personal write ups that give more detail and are 100 times more detail that the Manual.

an example would be Toyota nation.

thanks again for THE THIRD TIME DUDE

Yep the trouble with manuals is it would have to be 3,000 pages long to describe every thing that can go wrong and every tool to fix it.
