Yes, it is indeed my intent to get the FSM, as well as the Supplement on the Bosch ABS III system.

First, have to get the car! Will engage in that endeavor tomorrow.

BTW, you be well advised to learn how to test the ABS and perform the test on the car before you sign the contract of the new car.

if ever there was critical maintenance, this is it - the Bosch III - a system with awesome & unbelievable stopping power, but like any exotic system, special needs can and do arise.
I believe that this system sprouted from the Boeing fleet technology.

in its heyday, a Bosch III master cylinder commanded $3,500 .. now they are bargains, overhauls at only $1,000 or so. the ABS pumps about 1/2 of that ...

just checked the Allante parts cabinet---have 4 of the brake supplement ---who knows why???!!!! would be glad to get you one at less than what this sells for. The $10.95 UPS shipping seems like a rip to me so I'd suggest USPS media mail. Like a slow boat from ??? but cheap.

Bill, appreciate the offer, but just purchased both the FSM and Brake Supplement off eBay for a total of $53, including shipping.

i thought the brake supplement was a dozen page (or so) booklet that sold for a fraction of that.

The brake supplement is a book the same dimensions as you FSM with I'm guessing 60-70 pages.

Dave
What year FSM did you buy? Assuming you are pretty well set on the year of car you'll buy!
