    I'm looking at the 03 softail OEM service manuals on ebay. Do the new manuals have edits in them correcting old mistakes? Is there a difference from buying an old service manual printed in '03 vs buying one that was printed today?

    Thanks.

    I wouldn't worry about any changes if the price was right.
    Just a disclaimer but I can't see Harley changing printing for all the manuals that are sold.
    Where you "might" see a change is if you have an '03 and there was a change, it might show up in a later year (same bike) such as an '05.

    I doubt there would be any changes, tho in the earlier shovel manuals the cam shaft end play slipped by with the wrong specs, I do not remember it being corrected

    Thanks guys,

    I found some updated cd service manuals on ebay for $15. There are so many from the same store that it looks legit. hope so. I like having the pdf's in my phone so I can have them on the road.
