Looking for info, again

Well 3 years have past since setting up vintagesnow.com, and judging by the hits to the site, it has been a success. To keep things going, I am making my twice yearly request for information to add to the site. I am looking for owners manuals, repair manuals, wiring diagrams, anything that would help someone repair a vintage sled.

The site is, and will remain, free to everyone. Currently most of the site is in PDFs designed for Adobe 6 or newer. This year I will be moving the dates covered to 1990 and older.

If you have anything that is missing, please let me know. You can either e-mail it or use the upload page on the site to send it. If you have documents but no way of making a pdf, then there is a couple of options:

1) Take it to a local office supply place and ask then to scan to PDF
2) Photo copy it and send it to me. I will convert it.
3) Send the originals, I will convert them and send it back. In this case, you pay the shipping here and I will pay for it to be returned.

To everyone who has added anything, a big thanks. To everyone else, I hope the site continues to be of help.

I may have a couple of old manuals laying around. I will have to do some digging to see what I can do to help you. By chance, do you have permission to post the manuals on the site?? I know that at another site I am a member of, they had to get permission directly from the factory to post them and to view them, you have to be a paid member of the site. Membership isnt much, and it is really worth it if you are in need of this type of information,,,

Currently I do not ask for permission, which is part of the reason I only post older sled info, of which most of the companies do not exist anymore. To date my policy has been that if a company that is the owner of the copyrights to the information wishes me to remove it, I will. So far there has been no such requests.

I know of the site you are referring too, and I am not looking to step on toes. Just was tired of trying to find info that was either very hard to find, or you ran into a guy on e-bay wanting to sell a photo copy for $20.

I think you have a great idea there, I just wanted to make sure that you were covered and understood. Definetly not trying to harass you on it. I havent had a chance to visit your site yet but will take a look. I am in the process of restoring an oldie and am really excited about it.
