    I don't have a home dropbox account to check but aren't they the manuals scanned by many of us and tidied up by Tony Jackson that you probably already knew about?

    I was able to get them downloaded as PDF without the Dropbox. I wound up having to click 'Download', then outside the area of the popup to get that to cancel, then click 'Download' again. I have Dropbox courtesy of Craig K, but I didn't feel like opening the program or bothering with the password.

    Those might be from Tony Jackson, but the addition of the later RHD diagrams tells me not. Everything I have from Jackson didn't have these later RHD diagrams. They're by way of Darrin Brownhill, contact him for a workaround if you can't get past Dropbox.

    I am not unhappy. You know well this sort of stuff is difficult to find.This is now the latest 814 I have (March '74 for -1, Dec '74 for -2).

    I have been collecting this stuff for 20 years and now have a pretty comprehensive set of D series manuals. I have original hardcopies of both of those, same publication dates.

    I agree with you about the dramas of Dropbox. Tony Jackson had to go that way because people were abusing his old site by not following his request to keep local copies of the manuals and downloading them repeatedly, which regularly exceeded the download limit of the old host site. Hence he now uses Dropbox. I do have a Dropbox account I use for work, so could use that if necessary.

    I would be surprised if Darrin maintained a set of online manuals separately from Tony, but you never know. At this stage I am not going to download Tony's to see what is there now.

    Anyway, I am glad you are happy. Keep the smoke inside the wires.

    The March 74 version of 814-1 that I last downloaded was dated November 2014. If you click on the link per Darrin for 814-1, it notes last updated 7 weeks ago, so it may be a recently updated version. If you go in through the 'front door',
    https://sites.google.com/site/citroenpublicationslist/
    and find the 814 folder you see the file listed is also updated 7 weeks ago.

    For both parts of 814, go to.
    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/tv0b25gpm...14-manual?dl=0

    Darrin's links were given in 2011 and they are direct links to the files in that folder.

    Nice find Bill, a really clear and coloured 6 + 2 fuse diagram for our late RHD cars - someone has gone to a heap of trouble preparing that, I've not come across it previously - Brilliant!!!

    Cheers

    Truly. That's what I was so chuffed about. I don't know who it was that created that or found it first- Mick Popka, Andy Jackson, Darrin Brownhill- but I want very much to shake their hand and buy them a beer. 814 isn't so rare, but that diagram is. It along with the wire schedule explains a lot of things, electrically on the RHD cars.

    It's a beauty Bill, a heap of improved diagrams for hydraulic components too, also many coloured for clarification - but yes the wiring diagrams wow!!

    Already printed out A3 copies and laminated

    Dead chuffed thanks for the link and thanks to those who were part of making it available

    Cheers

    Another simple way of getting them.
    I just cut and pasted the dropbox addresses into a downloader. The trick is to tell your downloader to not check the certificate.

    I had no problem downloading. Just ignored the signup bit.
    They're searchable. Great stuff.

    [Correction] 814-1 is searchable, -2 does not seem to be.

    I can search No2. There are page thumbnails also. The file, PDF-1.6 format, was created by Acrobat 4.0 Capture Plug-in for Windows in 2000, modified January 2016.

    Unfortunately the fonts were NOT embedded which will give poor display. A common problem.
