List of Service Bulletins

The following lists are for years 1964-Aug'66 plus years Sep'1966-68, 1969-73 and some to the 1982 period. It seems the numbers in each section were re-used as the information was re-released, but original release dates were kept when lists were re-issued. This makes it possible to list all bulletins issued during the period in section and date order.

I originally said that this list covers all contemporary cars produced. We have other lists, but I was only doing the ones which cover the Imp production period. I was expecting other Club members to help to complete this on-line catalogue. This is still true, but by now I have listed everything to which I have had access.

Unfortunately we do no have the equivalent lists for commercial vehicles.

Some of my personal highlights are listed here.

Imp and Chamois rally conversion 998, cylinder head gasket
Imp, excessive rear tyre wear showing alignment of cross-member
Fitting trim to Imp coupé front and rear screen seals with an improvised tool
Weathershields Sun-Way folding roof was approved for Imps
