VP Book ID: 20168
Pages: 190
Dimensions: 8 1/4" x 10 3/4"

Description: : 190 pages and more than 170 illustrations and charts, size 8.25 x 10.75 inches. This Workshop Manual is appropriate for the entire line of 1948 through 1963 Royal Enfield 500cc twins. It will also be of use to owners of the 500cc Enfield Indian Tomahawk.

A compilation of two factory manuals, it includes the original 1948 to 1958 '500 Twin' workshop manual plus the later workshop manual for the 1958 to 1963 'Meteor Minor' Sports, De Luxe and Standard Models.

PRODUCTION DETAILS: Due to a number of different reasons, there is some confusion surrounding production details, as it is a known fact that the engine and frame numbering procedure did not follow a consistent pattern and, at times, was somewhat random.

As the '500 Twin' shared many of its mechanical components with the 'Meteor 700', the earlier manual is appropriate for both of these models. Royal Enfield was very adept at utilizing components across their entire model line and this 'sharing' carried over into their workshop manuals. Consequently, many of the sections and illustrations are identified as being appropriate for various models and not necessarily specific to the particular model referenced in the manual title.

The second manual is much more specific to the 'Meteor Minor' and its variants. The only noticeable 'shared' pages are the carburetter settings table and the frame and special tools sections. However, it also includes a 'Airflow' fairing section which is applicable to all models that had that option available.

In order to help identify the subtle differences between the various models, the reader is encouraged to review any of the appropriate sections in order to eliminate the possibility of referencing an incorrect 'shared' section...$34.95 USD
