Here's an online shop manual. I think most of the info is in the 60-62 manual & the 63 supplement has the rest.

Thank you Lee. Very much appreciated.
The first link didn’t have a 63 Comet, but I can print the pages off from that second link you had.
They call me “cheap”, but they call me back. Lol.
I will keep an eye out for one at the swap meets.

That's about all that is left of the TFFN forum from 3-4 years ago when it crashed. & the owner has since died. Might be a way to download it but I dont know. but it could go away at any time.

Hey Doug, I’ve copied a few manuals like that, even printed some out, nice to have the information when needed.

Yes indeed. Those site that were recommended are all I need for now.
I will continue my quest for an original owners manual when I hit the swap meets. I can't belive no one has reproduced them yet.
Thanks Lee.

On the owner's manual, yes.
You can find deals if you take your time and don't rush a purchase. No crazier than shipping prices :?
Cost me 25% to ship a Holley carb across the country.

Yeah Joe, I was talking about the owners manuals on eBay, I believe Doug might find one a whole cheaper eventually. When I bought my 600 Holley from Summit (several years ago) they had free shipping, think they still do.

I was looking a RockAuto, they have several different manuals for our vehicles, didn’t know that. Mostly maintenance types.

I got a set of factory maintenance and repair manuals from Motor Bookstore. Excellent reproductions.
