Mike Scott-Coomber has produced a service manual for the BSA Front Wheel Drive Three Wheeler. The manual is also relevant to owners of BSA Front Wheel Drive Scouts and other front wheel drive cars as many share the same or similar mechanical arrangement. The contents are reproduced below. The manual includes extensive photographs and diagrams. Of course if you want to read the manual, you’ll have to buy a copy!
