I think there were a Jonsereds WM  in paper version for 910, not sure for the others.
There are PDF's floating around on internet that cover 900's saws. These are from a book called "Chainsaw service manual" by Penton Media INC.

these saws were very common back when they were made , I had lots of cutters that ran the 910/920/930 and they worked very well

Just to bump an old thread....

I don't know why there wouldn't have been a SM for the 910, 920 and 930 separately or with revisions for each in the series at the end. I will admit, I've yet to see any online...IPL's sure, SM's from J'red, not yet. I have 80/90's I use in my business still going strong and they have J'red SM's. I acquired a 910E and everything they say about the lower handle AV's is true......you can't reef your pinched bar out of a set-back like with most saws. Although everyone gets a bar pinched now and again....it's totally user error. With this saw series, you have to be more conscious of that.

With the 910 anyway, you're gonna be tapped out for power with a 36" bar and .404 skip-tooth chisel. I wouldn't do it and stop at 32". Maybe using a 3/8" set-up you can get there, but I only run .404 skip tooth.

There are a lot of rumors and recollections about this saw series. One is that the 910 had no rev limiter built into the electronic module, while the others did. I only have experience with the 910, so I can't really say. PNW loggers loved them yes, back in the day...that much is certain. But they came out during a period where most everyone was into Second Growth or smaller stuff here. I ran a Husky 2100 for the big stuff and a J'red 80 as a back-up in smaller stuff. Then I was lent a 910E for a day from a saw shop rep. Was light enough alright, but didn't run circles around my 80, so I didn't run down and purchase one.....didn't see the point.

Given a smilar bar/chain set-up, I'm going to pit my 910E against my 90. Other than the weight, I'd be surprised if I favor the 910E
