Have fun and a donation for the site owner / keeper can show your gratitude, if that is what you get there and what ensures maintenance of the site.

I've used that site occasionally in the past for much older cameras. I couldn't find exactly the right model for my 4x5 camera, but they had ones which were certainly close enough. And there have been several cameras from the 50's where I did find the exact model.
The sites also good for flash gun manuals.

It's become my first port of call for manuals.
