WIPAC (Combined) Number 3 Manual and Motorcycle & Scooter Manual 1950-1969
Author: Floyd Clymer
VP Book ID: 20147
Dimensions: 8 1/4" x 10 3/4"
Description:196 pages, with more than 400 illustrations and charts, plus 77 wiring diagrams, size 8.25 x 10.75 inches. This manual is a ‘must have’ for any owner of a 1950 through 1969 motorcycle, scooter or moped equipped with a Wipac electrical system.
Wipac issued two ring-bound versions of this manual. The first was titled ‘Number 3 Manual’ and the second ‘Motorcycle & Scooter Manual’ but unfortunately, the publication dates of the individual pages were not identified. However, based on the contents, we can estimate that they were published in 1964 and 1969 approximately. The later manual contains considerably more information plus numerous updates to the data in the earlier manual. Unfortunately, some of the information from the earlier manual was also omitted from the later manual as it was probably considered to be outdated. However, as that outdated information is of significant interest to today’s owners and restorers, we have combined the entire data from both manuals into a single publication. Please note, that wherever the earlier data had been updated, we have only included the latest update in order to prevent duplication of information.
This ‘combination’ manual includes alternator and generator testing and servicing instructions, spare parts illustrations and part numbers plus Technical Data Sheets and Service Bulletins that provide additional information due to model updates and/or electronic equipment modifications. It also includes wiring diagrams by individual model type including: A.J.S., Ariel, B.S.A., Dayton, Dunkley, Excelsior, Francis-Barnett, James, Matchless, Norton, Piatti, Raleigh (mopeds) and Triumph.
The entire content of this publication is devoted to the operation, testing, servicing, maintenance, overhaul and adjustment of all the major Wipac electrical components utilized by the various manufacturers listed above. Out-of-print and unavailable for many years, these manuals are extremely difficult to find on the secondary market and we are pleased to be able to offer this combined reproduction as a service to all owners, restorers and enthusiasts of 1950-1969 Wipac equipped motorcycles, scooters and mopeds.
