Recently one of these was sold, on the superturbodiesel.com forum, by one forum member to another. But first it passed through my hands, and I scanned the whole thing --all 571 pages of it.
It's about the size of a very thick pocket bible. Covers Model 107 as of 01/1980, Model 123 as of 01/1980, Model 126 as of 01/80, and Model 201 as of start of production (all updated to January 1983 date of publication).

I am wondering how much interest there would be in my offering the complete scanned tech data manual for sale. Each two-page scan is a 25 MB .pnm file, and I did duplicate a few two-page scans where one section ends on the left page and a new section begins on the right page, so the whole thing is 9 GB in size. I could put it on two DVD's.
Note: this is not OCR'ed, it is just a plain scan, at 3485 x 2560 pixels (so, about half that as the actual page area) on my Canon MP210 multifunction, using XSane.
Here's a screen capture. On a 19-inch monitor, no doubt at all of the numbers:
Even not OCR'ed, using the table of contents and alphabetical index this is *tons* easier than attempting to use the bound volume. Especially for those of us who need reading glasses! --the bound volume has *exceedingly* fine print.
If there would be enough interest at $10 per two-DVD set, I will contact the copyright holders, MB of North America and MB Canada, and see if I can get permission to distribute it.
