Need some help want to find a forum that can use my P&W Twin Wasp series C overhaul manual.

Duckman, earlier today I'm sure you had a thread up asking what the value for a P&W Twin Wasp series C engine overhaul manual was.
I went to answer your question but the forum software would not allow me to do so??? This was definitely a first for me.
By the time I had logged off and logged on again, (in order to try and sort this out) your thread had vanished???

Sooo, thinking you still would like an estimate of it's value, and the fact I still have the shortcuts on my desktop, I'll answer the question you posted earlier this afternoon.:)

Looks like the going rate seems to be about $75.

A few examples:

Willy, I bet the post vanished because it was deemed to be a violation of the no for sale rules here.

If duckman gets a message reminding him of that the mystery is solved.

Good thought Dave, but he wasn't trying to sell it here.
Claimed something to the effect that his daughter really wasn't aware of the value of some of his items and thought they belonged in a dumpster.
All he was asking is if someone here had any sense of what it might be worth.

I'd post it om Barnstormers.com or Trade a plane.

I had my thread shut/closed/erased, because a moderator thought that I was trying to sell my manual on HSM . I was asking where I might search to sell this item. thanks for all the reply's.
