    Are you collecting manuals or are you working on a live P-38?

    You hardly need an erection and maintenance manual for that.

    The museum where I volunteer has several, but they are paper manuals not available to the public. We have them because we fly a P-38J and help maintain a flying P-38F.

    What information are you looking for?

    Hi
    mainly details, drawings/photos of around the engine nacelles internal/external
    and details of around the turbo chargers.
    i assumed that this detail would be in the E&M manual
    cheers

    I'll get pics of our P-38J around the tubos on Saturday and get back to you in here.

    Though we don;t use the turbos, they are bone stock externally with the exception that the turbo fresh air intake is plugged. We get carburetor air through the center opening in the cowling today. The two outer openings are oil cooler air ducts.

    I won't be able to get P-38F shots until Galcier Girl visits Chino at the end of April for our annual airshow.

    Hi
    thanks for the offer but i am pretty sure the F had different turbo panels from the J, which is why i was after the different info from the manual.
    cheers
