I got my manual on ebay for 30 bucks only it is a copy some things arent that clear but it is more than adequate for most repairs some are also on cd for the newer machines welcome to the forum Jeff

Welcome the forums! Nothing wrong with a T200; you might not see too many because it replaced the 864. It is based on the 863, a solid skid, so you don't need to worry about too many things. You may have some problems in severe applications with the motors tearing themselves loose... I've heard this has happened before, but for most purposes, shouldn't be too big a problem. I think you got a decent deal. $19k for a relatively new CTL that needs new tracks isn't too shabby at all.
