Help identifying year/model of 3cx

Hi,

The proud owner of an old JCB 3CX site master (white cab) although more rusty than white!

I'm looking for assistance to get a year and official model number so I can start ordering up bits to service and restore her.

Does anyone have a workshop manual for this particular model to assist with maintenance.

It starts, drives and digs very well. Main issue is that the lever for the 2wd/4wd is stuck and does not move at all. Any advice?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Stan

Google jcb parts. From there you can enter your machine serial number. Should bring up all the parts you need. Or try local jcb dealer

Thanks for the reply Nathan. Forgive my stupidity but is the serial number 9782 as indicated on pic or the 299404 number?

I cant find my details on 3CX serial numbers but from memory your serial number should mean its very late 1982 or early 1983.
