1912 Information Manual Page

So you want to see the manual on the Information on the Operation and Care of the E-M-F Automobiles? Well, you have found the right page.

These pages were scanned from an original copy of this manual. The only pages that do not appear here are the ones that are blank. There are 2 pages (front and back) that are blank at the beginning of the manual and one page blank at the back. Purhapse these were put in to allow for notes?

This manual gives lots of great pictures, details like setting the valve tappet clearance, and lot of just plain great reading.

The pages are presented as a link with a description to the right of the link detailing what is on that page.

Enjoy!!!
