Hard to say if Office Depot or the like will reproduce it. Copyright issues. I know this an old document, but I know how strict they are even on regular pictures.


Is the book bound? If not, then I can offer using our copier at work that will scan double sided and create a PDF. If it is bound, then you might have to dismantle it to be able the get good copies.

Leon a scanned version will be fine. Most of the older manuals Max, Kevin,KPack myself and others were scanned and assembled as .pdf files. If the .pdf ends up to large I can reduce it for you. Might consider making a copy in black and white as well it will be a much smaller file. I would be happy to do it for you also Leon if things dont work out. I did make both a color and black and white copy of your J line document you had made for me. It looks real good.

I also have access to a high quality scanner and could make a nice PDF of it. I've scanned a lot of manuals, have some experience.

Send me a PM if I can help,

Count me in as well. I'd like to keep a copy at work. We have an old 1969 65KW 12 cyl Propane Onan we still use as backup. Even has some of the tags in place

I, too, would like to have a copy and a scanned file is also fine for me.

Me too please if distribution to Canada isn't a problem. PDF is fine with me. I'll happily contribute to your expenses.

Thanks!

I too am available to produce a PDF for this.

I should point out that to produce the best results, the original manual would need to have the spine of the manual removed in order to scan each page as a separate sheet. If you are willing to do this, there are several of us that can produce a high quality copy of a manageable size.

Our son is working from home today so he will not have the so called hi quality pdf available until tomorrow. Staples wants 59 cents per printed page. The document consists of 16 double sided loose pages. I had it three hole punched and stored in one of my Onan loose leaf notebooks for years. Just plum forgot about it until lately. I had Staples try a sample page and the color was exquisite but at 59 cents no way especially with some many requests. I am hoping it can be converted into an adequate PDF reproduction and then easily emailed to anyone. Hope to know more by this time tomorrow.
