Hello All,

As part of trying to revive a U.S. spec 1979 Silver Wraith II "from the dead" I'm beginning to learn quite a bit more about the Workshop Manual than I'd already learned from working on my 1978 European spec Silver Shadow II.

It is amazing how much is market specific as far as the carburettors, EGR systems, etc., down to and including the carb linkages. All of this is documented in Chapter U of the Workshop Manual (TSD4200).

What follows is the content of Chapter U that is repeated by model year and delivery market:

U1 Introduction
U2 Exhaust emission control system
U3 Fuel evaporation emission control system
U4 Crankcase emission control system
U5 Carburetters and Automatic choke system
U6 Ignition System
U7 Electrical Components
U8 Fault Diagnosis
U9 Workshop tools
U10 Running Changes

Here are the pages in the PDF version of Chapter U where the various delivery markets and model years appear:

PDF Page Model Year
1 1977
49 1978
97 1979
143 1980

PDF Page Model Year
188 1977
240 1978
290 1979
340 1980

USA and Canada
PDF Page Model Year
390 1977
439 1978
488 1979
534 1980 - except California
578 1980 - California cars with fuel injection

Since this particular chapter is not OCR scanned and there's nothing at the start of Chapter U stating that it's got this configuration, it's not particularly easy to locate these specific sections unless you already know that they exist.

I hope this proves helpful to others besides myself.
