Wow! No I was unaware of the web page full of manuals. I shall copy them and review them. Thank you and to the gentlemen making this available.

My name is Robert Stengl, and I have the privilege and honor of working on the PT-305 at the National WWII Museum as acquisition manager.

Thank you for your heart warming welcome. I am humbled by the people who have rebuilt the 658, the veterans, and especially those who helped the 305 restoration.

We still have a daunting task ahead of us. bob

The ELCO Parts Catalog is very helpful in filling the gaps of our Higgins tech data. Thank you Dick Washichek!
