Default Detroit 2-71 Service Manual

Hi all,

I'm still in search of a service manual for the two cylinder Detroit 71 Series engine. I've looked "under the hood" and it's definitely a different top end from the 3-8 cyl versions... so it would be nice to have a proper manual. If you have one, or know of a source, please let me know. Thanks!

Also try the Yahoo group for the Detroit Diesels. And there is an outfit in Idaho that sells all kinds of stuff for the old 15-20-25kw gen sets and 2-71s, I think it is Emerson or something like that.

I have a manual in hard copy; what exactly are you looking for?

Thanks for the help folks. I'm ok with having a pdf copy.

I like to have manuals for the engines I run because I'm somewhat OCD, as well as to familiarize myself with the motor. I'm specifically interested in the top end... injector service and testing before a startup of the old girl (she's been sitting several years).

Dauntless: I sent you a message but never got a reply.
