Research projects stuff I want

The chassis data book is fine as far as it goes but there are many aspects of Jensen history which remain to be explored in detail. I have several undertakings in the works at the moment. All are long term research projects which will require a few more years' digging before I'm satisfied that I have enough authoritative material to publish.

One of the subjects I'm researching is the factory service bulletins. These exist in two series, one for the North American market and one for everyone else. In 2004, I published an edited collection of the Home Market V8 service bulletins. Next will come the bulletins for the 4-cylinder cars (both series) and the V8 series for North America, but first I need to track down a few elusive items.

The North American Service Bulletins

The following are missing from my compendium of USA Market bulletins. It's a long shot now but if anyone has comprehensive sets of these things and can locate the bulletins I'm missing, I'd appreciate a photocopy.
