A very practical book covering the Coventry Eagle pressed steel frame machines, The Silent Superb, Eclipse, and Wonder models from 1932 onward. The first section covers a well illustrated parts book including the 147 and 196cc Villiers engines, as well as the 2 and 3 speed Albion gearboxes. It doesn’t cover the Silent Superb models with the alloy primary chain case. This upgrade was on the later models. The second section is for basic maintenance requirements and includes carburettor information, as well as engine timing and electrical. Well worth the read if you own such a machine

We previously published a sales catalogue for the 1934 Coventry Eagle range of 2 stroke machines which will complement this manual quite nicely. You can view it here.
