I have been looking for this sevice manual for years and haven't seen or even heard of one. I have the 74' el tigre' manual and the 73' manual for the other models but was always curious about the 73' el tigre' manual. Could anyone shed a light on this ? maybe some "older timers" ? THX.

I've been looking for one since 1998 and have not found one, so no there isn't one. The best bet is to use the 74-75/75Z service manual as a guide, along with some dealer notes as to dimensions, like center to center, etc. Also having the 1973/74 racer manual, entitled "To Be Competitive" is a big help. Maybe having the 1975-Z racer book helps too. From all this stuff and the 1973 Parts Manual usually you can figure out how to restore one pretty easily. There are some minor differences between the 1973 and the 1974.

I have never seen a 73 service manual for the El Tigre'.... but when I bought a new 74 I ordered one for it and did not receive it that year.
It came in some time in 75 and had all the info on 74-75 El tigre's and the Z so that was a bonus worth waiting for.

With the 73 tigger being a new sled that year I don't think they ever got one printed.
