Workshop Manuals needed

Postby Philip » Wed Mar 15, 2017 10:16 am

The AOC is looking to gather all the available Alvis workshop/technical manuals and store them digitally, making them available as downloads to AOC members. This would add further information to the existing Manuals of Instructions and Spare Parts Catalogues which are already available as downloads on the members-only section of the AOC website.

Do you have a copy (physical, i.e paper, or digital, i.e. a CD or pdf) of any workshop manuals, repair manuals or similar technical guidance? Please note this request does not include the Compendium of Technical Articles from the Bulletin which was compiled by our Technical Advisor, Nick Simpson.

If so, and you're prepared to share what you have with the AOC membership, thus preserving this knowledge for existing and future Alvis owners and workshops, please reply to this notice with details of what you have. I'll then let you know (a) if we need it and (b) what we would like you to do. Please rest assured if you lend the AOC any materials, they will be returned to you safely.

Philip,

I have the following which I suspect the AOC would already have. All are in hardcopy format and are originals.

Post War

Motor Trader Service Data 202
Workshop Manual for the Alvis 46-58 from Wallage Reprints
AOC Technical Compendium for the TA-TC series

Pre War

AOC Repair Manual for Alvis Cars 1932-1939 by R.E. Spain - 1956
Alvis Instruction Book for the Silver Eagle Model TA 16-95
Instructions for the 10-30 Light Car deluxe
Silence without Sacrifice by Maurice Platt -original reprinted from The Motor April 6 1937.

I also have variety of bearing and seal catalogues that quote dimensions.

Regards,

Richard
Melbourne

Hi Richard

I've checked with our vice Chair what we have/need from your list - would you be prepared to have them scanned and email them?

We don't need the AOC Technical Compendium - but we would love to have the others...

Best regards

Philip
