I haven't seen one of these kits on eBay before.
Seems a reasonable price.

Seller is Flying Spares. Looks like they are using ebay as another sales outlet. The price is consistent with their web site offerings.

Interesting, I attended 10day course on Shadow at R-R School of Instruction early 1967, never saw one of these!

No date quoted, but probably applies to early cars only (6.25litres and 4-speed....) , otherwise I would have bid. There were a lot of changes until my 1971 car.
Unless someone knows the date?

Sorry to be a pessimist - the "book" seems to be a compendium of the Troubleshooting pages from the related chapters of TSD2476.
As you attended the Shadow course in the early days of the models production, it is probable many of the faults/problems were yet to become apparent so they could not be documented until later in the Shadow era.

Hi Gordon and everyone,
A few years ago, I purchased a folder of documents from E.Bay entitled Rolls-Royce Instruction School Notes and it is dated 24th of April, 1967. The original owner of the file was W.Grainger. Perhaps you and he were on the same course, Gordon? I have no idea how many courses they ran each year. The contents are fascinating and from the very early period of Shadows and T's.

I questioned the seller. Dated 1967.

Am I not connecting the "dots" here? Given that the Shadow arrived in what, 1966, it seems odd/incredible that a sufficient amount of problems had ALREADY reared their ugly heads such as to be able to fill 90 pages with trouble shooting tips as quickly as early 1967 which, if true, gives the impression that the newly introduced design was simply crumbling within the VERY FIRST YEAR of use...a bit premature it would seem, or were the very first Shadows complete pieces of crap self-destructing upon hitting the roads?? I would think that trouble shooting tips would be the response to troubles that took considerable years and many miles of use to develop and create patterns of mechanical deficiencies and that any such "compendium" would not be created until AT LEAST 10 years or so down the line. A 1967 publication date just seems a bit early to me. Maybe truth really is stranger than fiction.

I think it shows that Crewe cared.
Faced with a brand new car and a brand new fault a mechanic can takes hours looking and learning.
Why have every technician self learning learning instead of "learning from others mistakes" as it were.
Remember that years of testing went on. And knowledge gathered.
