I am uploading a pile of stuff to archive.org - CHECK IN DAILY OR WEEKLY TO SEE WHAT'S NEW!

 

You can find my listings here:

If you have something electronically you want me to add for you please PM me so we can transfer over email.

If you have something in hardcopy you want to donate let me know.  I remove all of the staples and cut the spines off so it is DESTRUCTIVE.  You will not get it back but it will become available to the World for ever.

 

Cheers, Steve

Wow, that’s awesome, thanks. What kind of material are you looking for?

I do hope you're not recycling the originals...our "forever" internet is only "forever" as long as the correct technology is there to retrieve it, and the correct power to run the technology...and someone cares enough to transfer it to a new technology...

Thanks guys,

  I am open to anything but probably more on the repair side than OEM literature.  I think the car clubs do well with the OEM stuff.  The concept is that a person would access my list and be prepared to turn any vehicle pushed, dragged, or driven to their shop into a running/stopping vehicle.  Anything along the lines of parts identification, parts manuals, parts drawings, catalogues, etc. would be very helpful.  Stuff for door handles, wheels, suspension parts, wipers, axles, brakes, etc. is good. 

  The material I scan is just getting boxed up and put away.  The Auto Electrician's Guide cost me about $100 outright and it's probably one of the best examples available.  Luckily that was bolted together so I could pull it apart without any damage but I just want to make a point that I'm not a "book photographer" like some people.  I fire the pages through the scanner instead of having a dual camera system with foot pedals.

  If you follow the links and open the documents you will see that you can download the PDF for safe storage.  We need to distribute the responsibility. 

Regards, Steve

Thanks for your contribution to the restoration adventure.

If you see something about "deriving" that means it is still being processed.  It can take a number of hours for that to take place and I think they make a human verify the contents to some extent.

Things are chugging along.

The McCord B-1 gasket catalogue turned out to be a really nice document, they must have owned the market as they covered everything.

If anybody has the McCord A gasket catalogue I would like to get my hands on it.  That one covers 1909 through 1927.

 

The Clum and McQuay Norris stuff is also great.  Lots of fun info.

 

Another thing I am after is OLDER catalogs.  MOOG obsoleted a lot of parts in 1956 so I need earlier catalogues to augment what I've already posted.  The earlier the better for them and all the other manufacturers would help.  King Quality Products is another one I'm after along with Monmouth and Sealed Power.  If something exists for making exhaust pipes based on lengths and angles that would be nice to have too.  One would think you'd just look in a book and whip up a tailpipe rather than order it back then?

Look in a book? Nah. Just cook it up with the vehicle on the stand. That is what happened when I went for an exhaust.

Gee Steve, you are making a wonderful resource for the future. There is some good stuff there. There is also a lot of good stuff at restorecarclassifieds.com but you can only get a page at a time, more or less blind with no idea what is on it until you download it.
