That's the turbo-prop book, not the turbine book.

I do have a brand-new copy (vintage 1994) whic covers the construction for the FD3/64 motor, which is pretty ancient by current standards. Also includes the updates for the /67 motor.

Price on the cover is 14.95 POUNDS, which works out to $30.50 using XE.COM

If you want it, it's $30 including postage.

Kurt has a new book, I just got it recently (available through traplet) which covers the later KJ66's and also the Behotec and other KJ varients.

Thomas Kamps 3rd edition model turbine book (also through Traplets) is also a modern read and will be excellent to familiarise yourself with turbine use.

The old Schreckling book is pretty much useless today, even Kurt says so - although I have a copy and its interesting to read it will be of no help in operating your engine.

Invest $100 in the two books I suggested.
