One method I generally use for finding instruction manuals is typing in “filetype:pdf” after the keywords in Google, so that only PDF files are shown as results.

Unfortunately the spammers are catching on to this technique also by posting just the first page or two of an instruction manual with the rest of the pages saying “Download the rest of this manual” linked to their payment page. However, generally after trying a link or two, I end up with a PDF containing the complete manual.

The Internet story about providing helpful information. You know, 10,000 return results, and only two of them are actually what you are looking for.
