Does anyone know whether there exists such a thing as a workshop manual for the Stihl KM Combi range of power units? I'm not talking about the owner's manual that just covers basic maintenance, but a manual that shows all the internals, illustrating how to take the engines to bits etc.

It's really frustrating that I can work knowledgably on almost any motorbike or car because there are good workshop manuals on public sale, but when it comes to a simple little two-stroke engine I have no technical, workshop information at my fingertips, and have only my own intuition to rely on. Are these manuals available and if so how do i get them?

Just my guess, but if they are available, they are most likely available only from a Stihl dealer. Stihl is fairly proprietary with their information as well as parts breakdowns of their equipment.

Yep your stihl dealer should be able to print one up for you. They may or may not charge you for it.

Stihl dealer says no, only dealers are allowed access to manuals. What a stupid system! Surely the manuals are available somewhere outside of the dealer network. It's not like I'm asking for some kind of sacred scroll or something.
