Default Napco Crab Loader Tractor

Hi All. Anyone out there have a manual for a Napco Crab loader tractor. I just purchased 2, one with a loader and a 353 Detroit the other has a 4 cylinder continental gas and a snow plow. These were made in Hopkins MN, I live in MN and have never seen them before. Looks like Chevy in the 50s and 60s used Napco axles to make 4x4 trucks.

Ex-father in law had one of these w/ loader. Originally had a 4 cylinder English Ford diesel but it was tired so he got a six cylinder version of the same engine and just stretched the frame to accommodate it. It was very loose in all the pins and seemed to me to be very "toyish" and not really very heavy duty. But very neat unit. No idea on it's current status but they never get rid of anything so it must still be around.
