Wanted: 78 172N Service Manual/Parts Catalog

Wanted: 78 172N Service Manual/Parts Catalog

Looking for the subject two documents - I just bought the aircraft last month.  Hoping to find these reasonably priced, but have been unsuccessful so far.  Paper or disc is fine.
Of course, paying Cessna's prices is a last resort.
Thanks

Re: Wanted: 78 172N Service Manual/Parts Catalog

Hi Gary;

I have purchased manuals from Essco in the past.  I don't know how their prices compare with Cessna.  Their web site is www.esscoaircraft.com, and you can order on-line.  I will probably be purchasing these as well, as I just purchased a 78 C-172 myself.  Need to sell a 150 before I start spending money on the 172, though.

Hi Jon - Last time I checked the Essco web site, their
listing didn't include a '78.  Got an email from another
guy who strongly recommended just ordering them from
Cessna to ensure having all the changes/updates, etc.
About $350 for the two books.

Re: Wanted: 78 172N Service Manual/Parts Catalog

Hi Gary;

The Essco manuals are:

C-172 1975-86 Parts Catalog  P/N D2065-3-13  $223.20
C-172 1977-86 Maint Manual   P/N P696-12     $211.20

If you can get both from Cessna for $350, it is a better deal.  I'll check Cessna before I buy as well.  When I bought the 150 manuals from Essco, they were a lot cheaper.

Jon - Interesting.
Cessna shows exactly the same manuals/part numbers.
Cessna's price for the maintenance manual is $176 for paper
copy.  $186 for paper copy of the parts catalog.  Also
available on microfiche for a bit less.

Hi Gary;

I just bought these from Cessna.  I was suprised to find they had the better price.  Also, there are some supplements to the service manual that were not available from Essco.  Thanks for the info.
