Franklin Ace 1000 Manual and Schematics

I don't actually own a Franklin Ace, but I did stumble across a manual about 15 years ago that I've been hanging onto. I finally took the time to scan it for those of you that are interested.

Adrian Black recently did a great restoration video on his Ace 1000 which got me inspired to do this.
