Part Diagrams:


Original Factory
Parts Books


  PET Parts Books  
on CD.



Someone emailed me to ask what's the difference between the Exploded-View Part Diagrams in Original Factory Parts Books as compared to the Part Diagrams in the PET Parts Book CD. I didn't know, off hand, so I decided to compare them. What I found out surprised me, and you can see the differences yourself in the images below. The differences are striking. The Factory Parts Books have part diagrams that are larger and clearer and the diagrams take up the whole page. The PET CD has part diagrams that are only a half a page in size and are not as clear and as detailed. If you look closely, they are essentially the same line drawings, sometimes arranged differently, but the size and the clarity of the Factory Parts Book diagrams are much better! What has happened is that the part diagram drawings in the PET CD have been reduced in size by half, and some of the part numbers are on the other half of the page. The rest of the part numbers are on separate pages, as are all part numbers on separate pages in the Factory Parts Books.

Take a close look at the images below.................and YOU CHOOSE!
