The Service Manual was just as expected, complete with schematics and I was able to download it in less than an hour after I ordered it. The only problem with these is that the schematics are hard to read due to the small font. I could remedy this by printing them on a larger printer.
The Technics manual was very clear and I was able to solve my technical problems.
I did not think that anyone kept these manuals and was pleasantly surprised to find them on the Internet and at an affordable price.
I would recommend Owner Manuals as a first source of technical products for ‘dated’ equipment manuals.

DEVELOPMENT AND TONER SUPPLY
13th January 1995
4. Pour about half a pack of developer [E] into the development unit. Then rotate the two outer gears [F] and [G] as shown to distribute the developer evenly. Then pour in all the remaining developer and rotate the gears again. NOTE: Do not rotate the gears in the other direction, or developer will spill out. 5. Remount the toner supply unit on the development unit (2 screws) and reconnect the connector. NOTE: Make sure that the positioning rib [H] sits in the groove [I]. 6. Install the development unit in the copier (1 knob screw and 1 connector). 7. Turn on the main switch, then perform the TD sensor initial setting for new developer using SP2-214.
CAUTION Never make any copy with the new developer before completing the TD sensor initial setting (SP2-214). Otherwise toner density control will be abnormal.
