This workshop manual was written in the late 1950s or early '60s by PL Garratt, the Norton Service Department manager who succeeded EM Franks( the author of a well-known servicing book). I have looked for a copy of Garratt for ages and not found one. Does anyone have a spare, or know where to find such a book?
Many years ago when I lived in New Zealand, I borrowed a copy of Garratt from the National Library on interloan, and made some photocopies (most given away to friends), but an original would be good to have.
... do crop up occasionally on ebay. I was lucky in that I inherited my 1948 copy from my dad (well actually pinched it off his bookshelf!)
It's available from The National Motorcycle Museum/Bruce-Main Smith books.
Code: STICKLAND/2938, price £21.56
That manual is a very detailed book for Norton owners. It does appear at auto-jumbles and i always buy them not matter what the cost. They are the only manual that i know of for the Nomad bikes.
of EM Franks inherited from my father, along with his 1950 Singles parts book and workshop manual.
