cruiser 80 manual

Post  derby rob on Thu May 21, 2015 6:57 pm

hi ,
i was looking for an engine manual/parts book for my cruiser 80 with the AMC 25t engine.I have the instruction book that came with the bike ,but i was after something a little more detailed.

The reason being after its first engine run for years (last tax ran out in 1965), i have noticed a small amount of oil has leaked from the right side of the crankcase in the week it has been standing since i first ran it.

Not yet had a full inspection of where the oil is from ,but if i have to take anything apart i would really like a full engine manual.Something like the Haynes type of thing,with crankshaft seal dimensions/info etc.

So does any one know who sells such a book .

cheers Rob

Rob, it is a nice thought, but sadly Mr Haynes never saw fit to cover the AMC engine FB , best book that will help FRANCIS BARNETT , by JH Goddard now out of print , but does come up n Ebay regularly, there are to print issues of this book , you will need the later (1961) issue to cover the Cruiser 80
Your leak is probably coming from the gear change shaft oil seal ?

If you need anything else try the National Motorcycle Museums web site. They have copies of instruction books, parts lists and Goddard (11.25 for a copy) listed by marque and then by year.

Found it after a trip there last year, remembered reading something about a library and looked it up. Fascinating what they do have. Other option is see what the FBOC have as they can do you copies of literature as well.
