You would want the service manual, however the parts manual is a usefull thing and will help you with the way things are made and put together, and help you if you are trying to order parts from a dealer or someone else who knows AC parts numbers. I almost didn't buy the parts manual for my WD at a swap meet, would have been a mistake and I am glad I went back before leaving and it was still there and I got it. You can never have too much information. Even the owners manual has information the service and parts books don't. Go for AC reprints or originals. They are better, some of the others cover more than one model and have less information on each model. My opinions, but I have just got my WD running, been through it all, and this was a real PROJECT TRACTOR.

Excellent point about the operator manual having certain information that the others don't- that is the whole reason why there are three manuals- the OPERATOR manual tells the owner what he needs to know about how to operate, lube, and maintain the tractor. The other two tell how to service (repair) it, and how to identify and locate parts for the tractor. So many problems could be eliminated if people just understood what those manuals are for.

A service manual is more helpful for removeal,and repair,the partshaus can help with needed parts.
