There's a few places you can try for the manual. First, Tektronix (www.tek.com) always has the
old manuals on microfiche for a very reasonable price. On the Internet, there are a few places
that deal in used test equipment manuals.
Off the net, Ed Matsuda, POB 390613, San Diego CA 92149 619-479-0225 (voice) or
619-479-1670 (fax) is a very good source for manuals.
Other sites that have links to manual sources (one is a copy of the other, I'm not sure which
is the original) are
You'll also find a great old Tek scope site with several links at
Don't forget that you absolutely MUST use silver bearing solder (2% to 3% silver) when soldering
on the ceramic strips in the scope. If you don't, the silver will leach from the strips and be ruined.
You don't want to do that, because that's in the big list of parts that you can't get from Tektronix
any longer. You can find silver-bearing solder in most of the major catalogs. The rations are
something like Sn60/Pb37/Ag3 or thereabouts.
The 310 was a good little scope. Have fun!
