I use adobe (as you know) which should cope with 400 pages, I can't remember specifically how many pages I've put into files in the past but into the 100's. Is it possible to pdf chapters / sections of the manual and burn them separately? Are the pages scanned directly to pdf? I'd contribute to a sub-contract / soft ware purchase if required.

Thanks for the offer :good:

I think I have sorted it now. The PDF now exists but it has no chapters etc. I will be sorting that out this week then testing it to make sure it all functions as it should.

Hi Guys,

I would like to ask a simple question, maybe a stupid one to some. The new Mahindra Thar link here, will this service manual be relevant to it ? If so, what would this manual cost and would you ship it to South Africa ??


Regards,


Jurie

Hi Jurie,
Sorry for the delay in replying,
But as Kev so correctly states the manual we have here covers the CJ3-4 and the older Marksman vehicles. Hence not any good for the Thar.

The Thar sport a 2.5 lrt NEF CRDe Turbocharged Intercooled lump, much newer heritage than the XD/P4-90 engine used in ours.

The gear box also is totaly more modern, a 5 Speed - Manual Borg Warner unit. not a Kia as in ours.
The running gear is independent coil sprung at the front and I believe the rear end is a full floating torsion bar system.

So nothing in the manuals we hold will equate to the modern beast, so I'm afraid we are unable to help at this time.

I don't think we shall see any Thar's here in the UK so it's unlikely we will be able to cover this model. :cray:
The journey isn't about departing in a well preserved body - but rather to skid in sideways - totally worn out - shouting HOLY SHIT WHAT A RIDE!!!!

Well this blasted PDF is being a nightmare.

I am now going to start all over again because the scanned pages totalled over 2.4 gig of data (all jpg images to retain quality). This resulted in my PC throwing up when trying to edit it due to the huge overhead it created.

Smaller scans will mean smaller overhead and then my PC will cope (its a 'high end' PC I built myself )

This will mean a few weeks further delay. Sorry to those waiting patiently.

I want it right before it gets released.

Alan.

Get a Mac.

Sorry to be so blunt. PCs are crap at serious work.

Or chop the task into 10 or 20 page lumps a shite MS OS can cope with.

Sorry.

:lol:

Even a mac would puke processing 2.4 gig of data in one go. Smaller scan resolution is the answer ;)

Doubt it. Set it running over night and good chance all would be ok before breakfast !

I think a Mac would be good for keeping the rain off your best jacket. :wave:
