technical service manual
« on: August 30, 2013, 10:30:17 AM »
I recently started scanning my 1982 TSM into my computer. After years of use it's getting bad & I better save it. It's time consuming - copy - recopy to eliminate overlap page - recopy to get margin for 3 ring folder. At this rate it will take me a year. Has anyone seen a software copy available anywhere?

It's easier to find digital copies of the TSM than it is the actual books. Ebay usually has them and I believe IE use to sell some as well.
I prefer the actual book, since it's easier to bring outside with you. I went through mine and tore out every page (book was already broke in half) and put every single page in a sheet protector and in binders (took 3 3" binders just to get the big book and no telling how many sheet protectors). It should extend it's life quite a bit.

Yes, I have it saved.  I am going to check with Ken and Gil to see if we want to put it on line.  Also have the '83 supplement scanned and saved.

Thanks guys - A thought might be to make it available on a disc & then charge a fee for it.

I believe at one time Doug was selling his copy on thumb drives.

Yes, on thumb drives.  I see that Ken put it in the revised store.  I will see what he wants to do.
