Is the Mahindra Chief Workshop Manual still available and how do I go about buying a copy?

Yes, they are still available. I have the masters and copyright now, but I have no hard copies at the moment.

I'm looking at releasing it in PDF format (much cheaper) but I haven't finalised a watermark for it yet.

Give me a few weeks to get it sorted and I'll let ya know ;)

Thank you, I have started some serious dismantling and it will be a great help. I look forward to hearing from you.

Chris,

I'm trying not to damage anything on the grounds that I may need it again and so far, apart from putting my foot through the floor, I've managed it. As far as the body work generally goes I'm stopping passing butterflies from landing in case of further loss! I've never tried to reassemble anything from scratch before but I already know I'll have lots of technical queries to ask the gifted and experienced among you all in the months (or possibly years) to come; but it's all very enjoyable nevertheless.

Hello Alan,
Regards from Switzerland. I'm new here in forum and owner of a Mahindra CJ
540 (Chief in UK?).
I need also the official Mahindra CJ workshop manual (how many pages? price?). Could you send a copy to me? Thanks

Here's a couple of sample pages from the manual. The watermark is prominent but does not interfere with the text of the page. If there are no serious issues with the way its laid out, I will be taking orders at the end of the week. It will be available on CD which I will post out. It wont be available for download. People have stolen data from here before so I wont be taking any chances with it.

I will finalise costs and then start a new thread.

Yes I agree the water mark dose not distract in anyway. Nice Job Alan. :thumbsup:

Theres a slight delay due to creating a PDF being so mind numbingly difficult. Office just throws up and the 7 (yes 7) editors/creators I have tried all fail miserably :banghead: . It seems that 400 pages is too much for them to cope with :rant:

Anyone have any recommendations for a full PDF editor that doesn't cost the earth ? (adobe ..... screenpunch )
