Welcome to our resource for MG Car Information.
Triumph TR6 - TR6 DOCUMENTS
The BACKUP data of internet data is just about complete. It is about 80MB now and with a little more help, it should be around 125MB. Obviously too big for e-mail or even a download. CD is the only answer. The problem is how to get it to everyone who wants it. There is absolutely no charge for this CD. I have an idea but am wide open to suggestions. The main requirement of this is that I get everyones e-mail address(e-mail to me..change my e-mail address...remove "at" and ".dot"). I need to know ONLY if you can NOT backup(burn) CD information onto a CD. I will bring to the BBS winter party the number of backup copies to give to all that attend ( Chris, I obviously need this number). I will then ask (PLEASE.....PRETTY PLEASE) those chaps to send a backup copy to 2 people whose e-mail address I will give to them (they will e-mail you and ask for a mailing address). Then the recipiant groups of 2 will each do the same thing ( an e-mail list enclosed with names scratched off as it goes down the line or I will just e-mail to all on the list where you are on the pyramid and you will see who you are to contact for a mailing address and who is sending to you). Example: If I give it to 6 chaps at the BBS party and they send to 2 chaps and they send to 2 chaps we have 42 CDs backed up. Yes it is going to cost a few of us a few bucks but then you probably got help from the person you are sending to on the BBS. I ask that when you get your backup CD, you e-mail me and let me know you got it. That way if it stops, I can tell where it stops ( I/you will see this from the pyramid list). We can then send the goose to that persons TR this summer. Obviously, if you do not have burn capabilities, you are on the end of the list. I will make every effort to make sure you send to within your continent...obviously someone is going to have to mail across the pond or to the land down under. I think this is better than one person sending to one person etc. This would take forever. So send me a SHORT e-mail ASAP if you want on the list.
Finally I do want to mention that this is not entirely my efforts. I want to thank ( and so should you) 2 people. CB from Kitchener (Mr. Windblocker) sent me some info for the CD and a big thanks to DB (aka db) from Huntsville Alabama who has been tying up my slow dial up connection for hours..( Just kiddin Doug). Doug has sent me one CD and hopefully another with info. Thanks to both of you!!
Any comments or suggestions welcome.
Thanks for the initiative.
I am available to assist you and the goose (S.O.S.) on this side of the pond.
I have burning capabilities and could set-up/mail a first batch to those interested.
|Rick- Sounds like a pyramid scam.Are we suppose to send $1 to the name on the top of the list?|
Add a bunch of ZEROs to that and go for it!
Erik Thanks. I just might take u up on that and send one to you.
Good response and it is not even 6 hours old.
Remember guys, it was also with help from Charlie and Doug.
Keep the e-mails commin'
So Don....the cheque is in the mail?
|Rick, Charlie, and Doug, Great job!!! I'm looking forward to this! Let me know if there is anything I can do to help!|
Since you chaps are sending me e-mails, it would be helpfull if you tell me your location on this little planet. EG: Ontario,Can (ON.CA); Washington (WA.USA), England, Australia....etc
This way I can try to put a little co-ordination to the pyramid. An e-mail address tells me little especially in NA. Everyone is going into a NEW folder in my outlook express for mass e-mail of the pyramid.
|Rick, I can copy some CDs here. I'll email you my address, but actually its right here!|
Thanks...so many offers to copy. I appreciate your e-mail is right here but when I receive an e-mail as a request, I paste/copy it into an address book directory called TR6 DOCUMENTS. This will become my pyramid. I can not ( and you can not either) take your address above and put it directly into Outlook Express Address book. SOOOO, please send me an e-mail.
|I have the ability to do this. E-mail posted. Thanks.|
Count me in. I've just experienced a major computer crash and e-mail is still not working right but will e-mail you when fixed. I've also lost my personalised home page for this site but will get that restored in time. I can burn CD's too and would be happy to help. There are also 6 TR6 guys here in my area who are not members but I'm working on that. I'll provide them with copies too. Thanks for your efforts on this - it's what the TR6 family is all about.
|What are these documents? whatever they are, if it has anything to do with how to fix / restore a TR6 then i'm in. I have burning capabilities as well and can mail the burned copies to whoever needs 'em...|
austin, TX USA
It's basically the Bentley service / repair manual but in a Adobe .pdf format..great to keep on the computer etc
Do not bother sending an e-mail...you are on the list....I appreciate your problem. That is good of you to send to the 6 locals. I suppose anybody who gets the CD can make a copy and give it to a friend (or 2:). I know of 2 TR6 owners in my neck of the woods and they will get one. Thanks Bob.
John B. I appologize to you. Yes you can get a persons e-mail directly from here. But that means I have to come to this thread everyday and go through the procedure of....well...try it and you will see it is a little more work for me.
JeffM, Thank you for your offer. If you read my first post to this thread then you will see how to get involved.
Better still, I will post it again:
"The main requirement of this is that I get everyones e-mail address(e-mail to me..change my e-mail address...remove "at" and ".dot"). I need to know ONLY if you can NOT backup(burn) CD information onto a CD. I will bring to the BBS winter party the number of backup copies to give to all that attend ( Chris, I obviously need this number). I will then ask (PLEASE.....PRETTY PLEASE) those chaps to send a backup copy to 2 people whose e-mail address I will give to them (they will e-mail you and ask for a mailing address). Then the recipiant groups of 2 will each do the same thing". "I will just e-mail to all on the list where you are on the pyramid and you will see who you are to contact for a mailing address and who is sending to you." (This way only one person has another persons address. I do not think it necessary to have everyones address passed around). "Example: If I give it to 6 chaps at the BBS party and they send to 2 chaps and they send to 2 chaps we have 42 CDs backed up. Yes it is going to cost a few of us a few bucks but then you probably got help from the person you are sending to on the BBS. I ask that when you get your backup CD, you e-mail me and let me know you got it. That way if it stops, I can tell where it stops ( I/you will see this from the pyramid list). "
"SOOOO, please send me an e-mail". Along with where you live (State, Province, or country) this will help in co-ordinating the list.
Please keep in mind that I will be taking this list to the Winter BBSers gig for ditribution On FEBRUARY 27 2005. At this point Chris has said a total of 9 guys so far.
I appologize for repeating myself..maybe I just was not clear enough.
One final comment. Charlie is correct. It does contain the Bentley/original service manual and we know how big it is. That manual takes up 22MB on the CD. Between OUR friend Doug B in AL. (who is sending me a second CD with more stuff) and I, the finished CD at press time, sorta' speak, will be over 120MB. Heck, it even has the official LUCAS Fault Diagnosis Service Manual.
|Rick- Lucas final took the fault and fessed up ,hey?|
I tried to find a publish date but none. It is a 7MB .PDF file scanned by the www.mgdriversclub.com in 2004. If you have an electrical problem, who better to tell you how to solve it than the original guilty party. It is 42 pages. Best viewed at about 130%
By the way..it is EH not HEY...so get it right. Eh?...:)
Count me in,
|Paddy...you are in....from your e-mail to me:)|
|On e-bay just saw the service manual (.pdf)for sale at Buy-it $20.00 with zero bids (US seller). Interesting! Hope he did not make too many:)|
|NOTE TO ALL|
The manual on the CD is NOT the Bentley manual. There is a current copyright publication from Robert Bentley Publishing which is the:
"The Complete Official Triumph TR6 & TR250:
1967-1976 Includes Driver's Handbook and workshop manual " It is NOT this publication!
On e-bay you will see a publication for $79.00 that is called: "Triumph TR6 1967-76 Factory Repair Operation Manual ". This is a publication issued by" Issued by Service Division Triumph Motors British Leyland Uk Limited". This is what is on the CD and does not say MOTOLIT on the cover. I beleive this same document is on e-bay in CD form for $1.99.
The CD is NOT FOR SALE and I will make effort not to give it to someone who plans to profit from it. So please be carefull who you give it to.
|Rick- SOOOO I have to give all the deposits back?|
Just for you...keep em'...you will need the money for those MIATA seats:)
Just kiddin guys.
Add me to the list, you should have mail.
|I have a total of 22 so far interested in the CD. Only 9 days left to get your name on the list. Send me an e-mail if interested.|
You should have my name...
|Rick, I hope you got my email. Thanks! John.|
|Yes to both of you.|
|Last chance....goes out next week. If interested all you have to do is send me an e-mail. You may be asked to send a backup copy to someone else.|
|You have my name?|
Yes. Everyone who has sent me an e-mail is on the list.
|I'll take one if you don't mind! I have a couple of burners.|
Might I suggest you read my posts on this thread. Or if you do not fell like doing that then at least please read the ones from date: February 18th
PS.... HINT! rjcassocATlynxDOTorg
|Gentleman, what a wonderful humain thing to do,Can I get on of these? no burner but Id trade a handful of blank CDs for one?Jeff|
READ THIS........READ THIS
REAR THIS........READ THIS
Is it me? did I do something wrong? Was I not Clear? Can people not read? Am I being anal? Was I asking too much of you?
Those that sent me an e-mail.. THANK YOU...it made it a LOT easier for me to add you to the list. The last person has to be entered mannually. (Yes, the last 2 on this thread I did add to the list).
I suppose it does not matter anymore...but it makes me laugh. I am having difficulty add this post to this thread. It sounds like I am comming across as some kind of grouch and that, I do no want or like to do.
I and Doug B, have spent hours collecting the data. I have burned 16CDs with jewel case and a CD cover that I spend hours on editing to use as a cover. You will see it, it is on the CD for anyone to use as a cover. The 16 CD goes to Chris' BBSers winter get together which he is very kind to host I might add. Thanks in advance Chris...I am sure it will be a good day EH? From the list of received e-mails I copied everyone into a new address book folder. From there it was simple to just take everyone to a document then paste into a spreadsheet ( why I asked for an e-mail...no one gets left off if you sent me an e-mail). How many times have I mentioned that now??? This spreadsheet will be sent to everyone on the list. You know who sends to you and who you send too. Never working with spreadsheets took me a while to figure out but was educational:)...I think?
BOTTOM LINE. As I Click "submit" I am finished with this post AND I am finished with the list.
On a more positive note. Enjoy the CD guys:)
Oh Ya...there are a few who sent me e-mails saying they will burn more and give to local friends (club members). Very kind of you..Thank you.
David B. of Windsor...took a quick look at e-mail before hitting the submit button. You got lucky lad..you are on the list:)
