As I was looking in the TR7 & TR8 parts catalog inherited from the PO, an envelope fell out containing two pieces of microfiche.
looks like part# or catalog # RTC9825FK.
Does this hold the contents of the parts book? I'd like to see what's in here,maybe the local library has a microfiche reader.

All car dealer's parts counters used to have microfiche readers.
Before that they had looseleaf catalogues.
And beore that, guys in brown shopcoats, who could recognise a part at a glance.
"That's a PH 741682, you've got in yer 'and!"
Oh, thank you! Have you got one?
" Ready Friday"

Now they have computers, and ask you for your car's registration number. Which is completely useless, if you want a part that wasn't OE on your car.
And the guys who used to be in brown shopcoats now wear a corporate shirt and know NOTHING, except how to use the ruddy computer.

I have a set of the 'small chassis' microfiche, and a reader, and I'm afraid you really need the reader! A light box and a large magnifiying glass may do the job!
Lots on ebay.com: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=microfiche+reader&_sop=15

Ah yes, guys in Brown shop coats with a well chewed pipe in their mouth.

Last summer I wanted a generic, 1/4" spigot, fuel filter for our lawnmower (it was never fitted with one)

The computer jockey parts guy insisted on year, make and model :-(
