Doesn't The New King Tiger Manuals Have Written Instructions?

Post by Mike Conley » Sat Mar 14, 2020 5:21 pm

A GOOD Friend of mine just received his 2019 King Tiger kit and he's having a hard time figuring out the manual. He said the build instructions are just all pictures with no written directions.

He asked me how my 'old' 2009 KT manual sez to anchor the suspension bushings in the mount because his '19 manual doesn't say. I said my '09 manual said to Loctite'em in. And there's other questions on his build he'd like to know.

Where can he find the WRITEN instructions he can read and follow.

Thanks! Mike (the one in Kentucky)

Hi Mike - we moved away from written manuals a few years ago as we have many non-english speaking customers - *edit - and I should add that feedback is that people prefer the drawings supported by some text where needed.

The manual actually already shows that the parts in question need to be loctited in place.

Thanks for the quick response!

I have my 2009 manual (and other Armortek vehicle manuals I have) to help answer questions because I'd be happy to help out.
