Re: Using Dropbox to share manuals

Pride63 - I've noticed various Dropbox links stop working after a while, such as those from donwhiz in post #12. Perhaps as the instigator of this helpful thread, you can collect the various linked items, and maintain your own new links in the first post (with credits to original posters). This way they are all together instead of searching 3 pages to find what you're after, and if the posted links break, you can update your 1st post with working ones. Is that possible?

I also like Dropbox for ease and simplicity, however, it appears it is not entirely reliable. Well, make that quite unreliable over longer terms, and I find many broken Dropbox links that are several months to over 1 year old. I can scout a more permanent free hosting site to store backups and possibly link to if that's helpful.

Re: Using Dropbox to share manuals

It's probably best to find a new host if possible as Dropbox links need updating all the Time.
How can we get more people to contribute? Any ideas David?

I can check with a couple car nuts I know in the hosting biz. Will let you know when I know.

And there's the rub. There is a fear (often legitimate) of copyright infringement. This tends to quash the free sharing of some stuff. I would say this will be your greatest hurdle, as the facts must be thoroughly researched for your own protection, and then potential participants (including hosting sites) educated in those facts and limitations.

Re: Using Dropbox to share manuals

In my quest to rewire this car I was unable to find any color coded diagrams for the 65 Galaxie.
I ended up just color coding it myself and figured you guys would probably want it as well.
I also have the 1965 Ford Mercury Shop manual that I'm going to upload soon.
I noticed that the dropbox links were not always reliable so I went ahead and just put it on my server.

If you guys want, I can grab all the rest of the docs you have here and put them up on my server as well. If one of you has a bunch of them you can email them to me or I can just add an upload area.
For now, it's just the wiring diagram
