Film Camera Service Manual Resources

When our film cameras malfunction, the first thought, other than *!!^##, is usually "Can I fix this myself?". To answer the question, a copy of the service manual or similar repair guide is usually helpful. A good resource for Pentax film camera service manuals continues to be Kim Coxon's Pentax Manuals Web site:
Pentax Manuals | Service Manuals
Downloads are free and the list of available manuals covers many popular models. Recently, I came across another source of free manuals that might be useful. That source is the Learn Camera Repair Web site. They have manuals and repair articles covering many brands including Pentax and should be useful to any owner of vintage camera gear.
Pentax | Service Manuals | Learn Camera Repair
If the mods are agreeable, this might make a good sticky.
