Preliminary shop manuals ???

Hi folks,

I'm looking into buying a Preliminary 1986 thru 1989 MB Chassis and body service manual. I can't seem to get a good answer from the vendor as to what this manual contains. He says that the non-preliminary manuals were broken up into 2 volumes and that preliminary manuals were incomplete for the new model year. Does anyone know if a preliminary manual IS complete for the model years preceeding the last year mentioned?

I'm not familiar with the term "preliminary" as it pertains to MB manuals. I have:
Service Manual, Chassis and Body 126 (comes as one huge, or two vol.)
Service Manual, Engine 617.951 Turbodiesel
Service Manual, Heating, Airco and climate control 126
Maintainance Manual 1981-1993
Technical Data manual 1985
Introduction Into Service manual 1985

The last manual (intro to service), is described as a manual to familiarize the technician with the changes in mechanics for the new models. This may be what the vendor is calling a "preliminary" manual? It is NOT a complete service manual; only changes in service procedure for the new model year(s) is/are covered.

For Christmas/ Birthday/ Father's Day any one out there could get me the Electrical TroubleShooting Manual 1984+. );

The Golden Rule

1984 300SD (bought new, sold it in 1988, bought it back 13 yrs. later)
