Thanks John,

ManualsPlus have got back, and said they have the manuals, but there are 
no change sheets that cover up to the serial number of the unit I have 
(2904A02491). I will buy the manual from them, although I've asked them 
to clarify if I need 05370-90020 or  05370-90031, both of which seem to 
be combined operature/service manauls, but I'm not sure of the 
difference between them.

If anyone has a change sheet that goes up to my serial number 
(2904A02491) I would apprecaite it. Or you know the difference between 
manuals 05370-90020 and 05370-90031, please let me know.
