    looking for any manuals on a lorain track crane, supposed to be a 1976 model 36 but I think it must be older. There is another number on a plate which is 32165. bought this crane at auction with a drag line bucket. thanks for any help.

    I can not help with the manuals but the model 36 crawler was made

    up until 1969 and should have a GM 3-71 engine rated at 62 or 77 HP.

    The standard model 36 was rated at 19.5 tons and weighs 48750 pounds.

    The model L-36-K8 was a little heavier.

    Thanks for the help anyway. I did not think the crane was A 1976 year. Looks like they had the motor size wrong to. I can not believe that there is no information on this crane anywhere on the internet, although it was made   in ohio. I have looked for over a month and have found absolutely nothing. 

         thanks anyway Richard
