Finally, some 8 months in preparation, I received my detailed Spartan Parts Book. Cost some $129 and is made specifically for your chassis *VIN*. Now that is detail. First impression is superb. Every single nut, fitting, bolt, every part is diagrammed, exploded, part numbered, everything. Talk about complete and thorough. It's a full size three-ring binder some 2 inches thick. Fully indexed and cross-referenced and tabbed.

If you DIY, this might just be your Spartan Bible. Order one direct from Spartan and wait.



PS: Moderator please cross to the Spartan chassis club.

Wooo, Dude! What a great idea and resourse. Your pic's of it are great. I'm at Spartan on the 3rd. of October (One day only appearance) Think I could get one while I'm there?
Are you ever getting to Florida Jeff, or do you only do snow?

Good news Jeff. The only problem is that only a few of us could do much with it, including you and Peter. It might be dangerous in my hands.

Peter: I can tell you Jeff is already scheduled for another snow winter at Tiger Run. He hasn't chosen warm and sunny yet as opposed to cold and buried in snow. Ask him how deep the snow accumulated to last year. But he is in fact younger than us and likes the snowboard. You like boards too, but they are contained within the hull of an ocean going vessel.

Hah! You guys are a riot! I intend just to read it... It's getting too chilly out here to actually even pretend to turn a wrench.

cwg - maybe, just maybe, you initiated something here in the cold mountains - yep I found out who started it all - before you left relating to some poking and rubbing you encountered... Might need my additional followup this winter????? Hmmm...

PS I almost made it to sunny Fla in Feb2009 when I was offered a second row infield RV space for the Daytona 500 - for a $$price$$ of course. I decided it would've interfered with my shredding at the best time though...

It took me a while to get mine too. It's a bit pricey but when I see the detail and accuracy of it, I can understand it.

Technically, if you call them to order a part they have to look it up, so why bother with a parts manual? But, in reality, if you need to do this, having a detailed listing right in front of you helps insure that you can communicate effectively with the guy on the other end of the phone so that you will indeed get the correct part.

Plus, it makes for great illustration as to how your coach is put together so that you'll know where stuff is in the event something goes wrong. It can be a real time saver. When you think about it, it's only the same cost astwo months of DirecTV DVR service.

She sure seemed very nice and I thought of you when you were both in the vicinity. Nothing like a matchmaker to take care of you.. after all, as you pointed out, the rockies do get cold. Glad to be of service. The rest is up to you.
