Free - Online Service and Parts Manuals
 
I found this site that digitizes manuals and offers them free. I hope others find it useful when they cannot find the one that came with something or in the case where an OEM component was installed without one. Note that manuals are in PDF format so you will need a reader.

If you hate Adobe products, just use a search engine of your choice and find a copy of CoolPDFReader.exe for an excellent PDF reader.

PDFViewer is a good free reader also and I think the PDFill programs a must for anybody that ever has to fill out a form (although PDFViewer has some ghost capabilties too) and I think it is still only $30 for a lifetime license.

If you just want to read PDFs, SumatraPDF is scary fast. It is free too and runs but a small piece of code.

My issue with Adobe products is the cost and their pricing policies. Those of us who play fair and license what we use get royally sc%43@d and the disparity between academic pricing availed to some college secretary and what I have to pay really frosts me. So I own no Adobe products I would have to pay for and frankly most of the open source alternatives I have are just fine for my needs.
