Number of volumes

I bought a set of Porsche printed manuals on ebay today and all the volumes were there, so my problem is solved. Thanks everyone for all the help.

Regards

Tom

The actual bound shop manuals come up on Ebay now and then. Porsche still has it's collective heads up their stinky holes about the CD PDF shop manuals. Copyright thing.

However they have PDF'd the PET parts program and made that available for download on their web site.

I've got the Porsche 944 electronic workshop manual, but its only useful to a point!

The thing is, it considers the user as a trained machanic in my opinion, so you don't get all the instructions that you want. Mind you there is a hell of a lot of info on the disc!

I have the S2, and there are sections on there that are added for my car, with notes about the S2.

From a reading point of view it a dead loss, its a good tool as part of your info collection, but I would rather print off the info you want from some of the Clark's garage shop manual page when a job comes up, and read all about it in bed the night before.

This source of onfo is invaluable to a DIY machanic.

Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.

I've found missing pages in "those" files. Be careful.

Note that the electrical diagrams for the early 944's are on Pelican.

http://www.pelicanparts.com/944/electrical/944_electrical_diagrams.htm

As well as parts diagrams:

http://www.pelicanparts.com/944/944_parts/944_83-85.htm

No cross reference to the number though.

Here is the official Porsche parts catalog source:

http://www.porsche.com/usa/accessoriesandservices/classic/classic-originalparts/originalparts-originalparts/

Takes the place of the PET program they released to dealers a few years back. Be sure to get all of the volumes. Once the PDF is open on your computer you can save it to a folder (directory).

DO you have the FSM info? See my thread on head resurfacing 262471 - looking for help on the
three (I believe) head gasket and resurfacing cut pairings
to restore a 2.5L head with the usual corrosion. If you can help.............

thx

The PDF version is ok and better than nothing but it doesn't compare to the dealer version that is still released to the dealers and is updated every month. I just got update 195 which is dated December 2005 and has every model, every year, searchable by VIN, part number, part name, shows superseeded part numbers, cross references parts across models... all of which the PDF can't do. The PDF version doesn't show the 993TT, only has one year of various models like the Boxster (only has 2004 986S which is a completely different car that the 97 986).

The PDF PET does have 2 good functions. One, it is available and better than nothing. Two, it is easy to print out the entire model parts pages to make a part manual.
