    Does anyone have interchangeable parts manuals for the P-38L? I am working on one that will be returned to flight status this summer, but the maintenance manual does a terrible job of detailing cable and pulley assemblies. I did find the ESSCO manual website...but free is better! :p

    I am certain I could reciprocate with other tech manuals, such as Spit, P-51, T-6, P-40.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I volunteer at the Planes of Fame Museum in Chino, California. We have a flyable P-38, and I'm sure there may be some manuals around. Not sure about the "L" model. Is this P-38 youa re working on a private aircraft or a museum aircraft? If the latter, what museum?

    Unfortunently I dont know of any out there that are free for a P-38L. Would love to see some of those manuals though.
