Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies

This could be one of the most important tips on FixYa!

So often I see requests for instruction manuals on this forum, many now not available. Firstly, when you buy anything more complicated than a pencil with an attached eraser, insist that the dealer supply you with the instruction sheet or books and do not leave the shop without it! Check the packaging to make sure that your books are there.
This is not to show you how good I am but rather to let you know that if I can do it so can you, and probably even better. In many cases it is unfortunately probably too late, but at least you can start now.
Get a big ring binder of lever arch file, preferably three or four ring and about 20 plastic fileable plastic pouches. Number them from number 1 from the third one onwards, using the first two for you index pages.
Any instruction books or literature that you accumulate, attach the proof of purchase documents in it and place them in a pouch, number the booklet the same number as the pouch you put it in (you can put several booklets in each pouch) and make up an index listing the make, description, date of purchase, waranty period, price and the number of the pouch the book is filed in - computerise the index if you like. This makes it easy to find the booklet later and it is more difficult to mislay a large file cover than a small instruction book. (When you get multilanguage books, cut out the languages that do not apply to you to reduce the paper you collect,)
(I have the documentation for every appliance etc in this house, and as I said, if I can do it so can you.)

I wont to buy a workshop service manual for fugi 12 speed powershift in a 9380 case ih tractor

I searched the net and the best place that probably could help you is www.bigtractorparts.net
they show a parts break down for one fugi transmission
there are a lot of forums about that transmission and the availability of parts so I would be talking to specialist repair shops to get a better idea of parts availability, workshop manuals for sections of the unit ( one price was $2,320.00 for the manual , and others say that you can buy or rent manuals )
some forums talk about upgrading to a better transmission
I gather that in requesting a manual you are having transmission problems so lots of communications with specialist shops including case may be rewarding

Does anyone know how to get to the spark plugs on a 2005 CTS Cadillac or does anyone have a pdf of the owner's manual that i can download

Its complicated. You need to remove the intake manifold on the top of the engine to get to the spark plugs on the V6.

If you want an owners manual, I suggest you go to one of the Cadillac forums and see if anyone has an owners manual they might scan and email to you or you might offer to buy one if some owner has one available. If you offer to buy one I suggest you will get a better response.

I turned on my hp pavilion 23 to spam attacks

Yes there is. There are free-for-download utilities that are available. This forum is way too difficult to communicate with. For more free in-depth help go to www.suggest-a-fix.com
which is a free computer help forum that I belong to. Post in the Hardware section and I (or someone else) will be along. This forum is not set up for complicated problems that require detailed, in-depth communications.
