Hello everyone and glad to be aboard! I need help with a used bike I just received. It's a Spalding DynaSport Mountain 18. My problem is the repair/parts manual was lost. I contacted Spalding which was lost cause since the bike was made in early 90s. Most of all I use the bike for daily needs since I cannot afford fuel costs. I've suffered a tremendous personal loss and in dire straights financially. I would like to fix or repair some things myself (adjust brakes, derailer, &c) saving the cost of bike shop expenses.
Any help would greatly be appreciated and thank you advance!

What exactly is your question?
Manuals that come with bikes almost never give you much useful information.
Take a look at Parktool.com.

The bike you are referring to did have a generic owner's manual, but not a specific repair manual to that bike. If you have some repairs that are needed right now, your local library should have several books on repair.
+Manuals are basically useless.
+Bikes are frames with generic components bolted onto them. You just need to identify the brand and model of components, and then dig in.
