Sorry but no. I don't like spreading my info around the internet just to download 1 file. Call me parnoid, but I try and avoid this at all costs.

It's not worth signing up in my opinion. I'd rather look else where for the same file. I'm greatful for the fact the OP posted this but there must be a better way to do this. What about an ISP server space for webhosting? I used to use my free 5megs (or whatever it was) for this kinda thing all the time.

Downloaded. I converted it to a straight PDF, all 1,750 pages. This resulted in a 58-MB file. The sections remained grouped but are out of their original order and I am not going to reorder 1700 pages. There is no Table of Contents, but the PDF is searchable so its not bad. Resolution is good. The PDF is hard to navigate though because there are no page numbers or headers. Ill use this as a reference but will continue to look for something more user friendly. To the OP thank you for posting, I imagine this took a lot of work.


EDIT: Converting to PDF causes pages/sections to be out of order to the point of making it difficult to use. I will personally not use the PDF but will try the PDF Portfolio. Also note, I have a blazing fast computer and the Portfolio still needs quite a bit of time to load.

Thanks, but I found the same issue, just reporting.

Update: added file to MediaFire upload server

I forgot to mention, the links are not accessible without a (paid) TechInfo account. All the links are supposed to do is redirect you to another section of the manual that was already covered to avoid having to add the same material twice. You will have to manually navigate to the corresponding sections yourself.

If someone is willing to reorganize the pages so they're in one single document instead of a portfolio of multiple documents and send it to me, I can add it to the OP.

I just combined all the pdf documents into one manual... There is about 4700 pages total. I'm going through now making each page "searchable" with OCR. Though the chapters/bookmarks are out of order... They are infact in Alphabetical order based on the file naming structure. I don't foresee this to be a problem as long as OCR is on each page. Thread starter Azian_Advanced, PM me your info, I can make this available in dropbox if needed and post this as a link as well?

I have some linux skills. So I'm going to split up each file and possibly be able to put everything in it's proper order using some bash scripting... This is just theoretical at the moment. there are about 1700 different pdf files. (according to the PDF viewer) when I split them up... But if there is a logical order of extraction... I might be able to make this work.

On a related note... If I have time this weekend... I'm going to just do a grab of each page from the tech site. That way we will have all the pages.

Note: This is in response to the issue with some of the pages missing with a login error.

Just giving an update... This is taking much longer than expected... I'm looking at the techinfo site... and there is no easy way to perform a script to get all the urls I want. ( Or at least I'm not good enough to do it that way) So for now... I'm just going through each section and pulling one by one... This is taking a while... If only I had like 10-15 members that would volunteer to grab all the data in a specific section haha. :P

Daily Updates: I am not going into the Engine Section... I might have to purchase another 2 days to work on this... XD It takes a lot of time... I'm being very thorough... As I am going through this... I noticed that in the info links... there is a lot of redundancy, which hopefully I can merge all of that information (if it's even needed) and we'll be good to go.

Update: I Finally viewed the entire Repair Manual. I have half a day left till my 2-day subscription ends. I'll see if there is anything else that is worthy. I'll hopefully have it all built up by the end of the week.

I'm currently uploading the file but may take another couple of hours before it's ready. I quickly skimmed through it and it is really well put together! Well done Surakusa. The OP will be updated shortly.

edit: Whoa 5009-page file!

Updated the first post and added Surakusa's version of all 5009 pages into a single PDF. The Table of Contents are useless in this version but use Ctrl + F to search by keyword for faster navigation. This runs MUCH FASTER and SMOOTHER than the PDF portfolio that I initially uploaded before.

Also, a bookmarked version of the same file is in the works!
