If you are looking for vendors of DS420 spare parts go to my web-links page.

This manual RTC9183B (July 1978) is the last one for the cars with the Borg Warner model 8 and 10 gearboxes. It is included on the Unipart/JDHT CD-ROM described elsewhere on this web site.

The manual bears the following note: Printed by The Nuffield Press Limited, Cowley, Oxford, England.

For cars with the GM 400 gearbox you must refer to the later parts manual RTC9887CD.
For older cars you may refer to the very first Catalogue JC53 (1972).

An earlier printing of this manual appeared as RTC9183A (January 1976), but that printing contains substantially less information; it is about 100 pages thinner, and the majority of the drawings are similar to the ones in the previous version JC53. Therefore, the web-pages shown here are taken from the latest version RTC9183B exclusively, except for the front page of the earlier version shown at the right (click to enlarge):

In November 1980 this manual was published in a microfiche version RTC9877FG: the set has three fiches: (1) Introduction, Engine, Flywheel, Clutch, Gearbox, Propshaft, Suspension, Steering, Brakes, Exhaust,
(2) Introduction, Cooling, Heating, Electrical, Subframe, Bodyshell, Facia, Trim, Miscellaneous,
(3) Introduction, Numerical Index.
If I can find a way of showing this microfiche-set on this web site, I will do eventually. Earlier microfiche sets do exist too; they have part numbers such as RTC9877FE and RTC9877FF and were published only a few month apart.

This introduction text is taken from the manual verbatim

This Parts Catalogue is to be used for all Limousine models, to both Home and Export specifications; the part numbers quoted are always common to all models unless otherwise stated, in which case differences are noted in the Heading or the Remarks column.
This catalogue does not include parts peculiar to Landaulette or Hearse models.
As the list caters for both Home and Export markets, reference is made throughout the text to the "left hand"(LH) and "right hand"(RH) sides of the car. The "left hand side" is that to the left hand when the car is viewed from the rear; similarly, "left hand drive"(LHD) models are those having the drive control on the left hand side, again when the car is viewed from the rear.
The heading of each assembly is printed in capital letters, whilst the spares relevant to each assembly are printed in small type and inset to the right. The fact that certain items (printed in small type) are not inset indicates that they do not form part of any assembly and must, therefore, be ordered as individual items.

NOTE: suffix H to the chassis number denotes that the model is a hearse.
