... allowing you to print them out and take them into the garage. Produced using PDFCreator.

Main text sections are printed two sheets to a page, appendices one sheet to a page for clarity of drawings, schematics, etc. These are PDFs produced direct from the web pages, which are optimised for online use of course, hence there are unclickable links in the PDFs. When printing your computer should allow you to specify which page or pages you want to output if you don't want the whole lot. This is particularly applicable to advance curves and schematics, but will apply to anything if you are just doing a particular job. Separate downloads for each main section (and Advance Curves separated from the remainder of Ignition) have been created to reduce file size and download time. Appendices are separate to main text as it was found that combining them doubled the appendix size even though the main text is very much smaller, rather than simply adding the two together.

First suggested by Fabio Lupano and I'm grateful to him for his suggestions and comments on structure and layout etc. Fabio recently bought a 1965 MGB in very good condition in Scotland and drove it back to Italy - quite a journey in any event, let alone in an unknown quantity!

All PDFs either new or updated April 2016. Unfortunately since I altered the thumbnails on the main pages in order to reduce resources they no longer appear in the PDFs. However the full-sized are displayed in the appendices, and the trade-off is that the main pages take up much less space than before.
