Have a few more manuals I’ll scan soon for the 7/9xx’s crowd - how to install the various seatbelt equipment for 700 and 900 cars, and the aerial antenna installation manual for 200/700/900 cars.

(Straight forward stuff I know, but the seat belt one has the proper torque measurements which is nice)

Elastic search in AWS, insert once with OCR and use document ID and page number as a composite document ID?

So where we're at is that it's hosted, but we're still organising the data. Scraping the document IDs automatically is difficult as they move around inside the documents, they are not terribly consistent in format, and many documents don't have visible part numbers at all. Many uploaders were nice enough to name their files after the Volvo part number of the document, but even then I expect 99% of visitors will want to filter by model and/or year, which is again not easy to automatically pluck from the documents with certainty.

We played around with indexing, we chucked the whole lot into ES and used Ambar as a frontend, but it was resource-intensive and also not actually terribly useful, as in a bunch of my scenarios I was looking for something like "rivet" but Volvo call it something really generic like "retaining fastener". It was good at finding wiring diagrams though.

Anyway, so we ditched Ambar, now we're looking at ES Service with Searchkit as a frontend out of S3.

If we don't get that working to a satisfactory level in the next few days, we'll switch to the alternative approach, which is recruit a bunch of people to go through the documents and mark them up in a spreadsheet, than have a script break it all up into useful metadata and organise the files from that.

If we go the mechanical turk route, I'll post here looking for some volunteers to help out.

As an aside, "final" count is 14.6GB and 2190 documents/images after auto deduplication, but we've found there are some documents that sneak through (i.e. they're the same actual document but scanned by different people).

Why don't you just post a library of GreenBooks .pdf files with labels as to models/years and Volvo subject. Trying to create an universal searchable database is far beyond my needs. If you want me to add the GB part number to the 19 files I uploaded I would be happy to but no one would search on that.

Okay to clarify, that is what we're doing, and the end result will either be exactly that or that + searching. But either way we have to actually create all those labels because right now we have 2000+ files with names like "100.pdf", which as it turns out is a 1964 122S marketing brochure introducing the availability of automatic transmissions.

So the "just give them model/year labels" is most of the work. With search indexing, the indexer is very smart and does most of the work for you.

While not the same as greenbooks, I have a hard copy of 240/740/940 dealership service procedures and exploded diagrams that I can scan if that would be beneficial to the community.

If you can scan it, I will definitely add it to the archive.

ropo, I just had a look, I think we have everything in that list.

I should post an update. We're still organising the files. I've got three volunteers helping out, if anyone else wants to have a go, make an account on ozvolvo.org and post here https://ozvolvo.org/discussion/6907/...rchives#latest

It's fun spreadsheet work, looks like this:

. . . of the last post on the GreenBook restoration thread is there any update to the status of the project?

While I think I have all the .pdf versions of the books I will ever need there is a whole world of folks that have a need for this information.

The work to tag all the files has stalled as everyone seems to have either lost interest or is just busy. I myself have no time at the moment as I'm organising a meet here in Australia. That's a month away, once it's done with I think I'll just spend a Saturday finishing it off, but if anyone wants to help in the meantime let me know.

Once it's all tagged I'll be able to generate a basic organisation of documents and put it all online.

I'm happy to host any info on the site here. As for the old green manuals, I cant host them locally on the server here but i could probably set up a torrent tracker link or something if people wanted to go peer to peer?

I loved the site for all the different configurations for the headlights, I was trying to figure out the best setup for my 1988 245 and he had all the information I needed for the swap to the quad round headlights from the previous body generation. I know you guys are focused on recovering the technical manuals, but if you can find the time to recreate the customization information he had posted it would help get the next generation us going.

Ummmm, it's pretty easy. Cut cowl panel off and replace with earlier -85 version (USA), then replace fenders and hood with same. Install 4 rounds. Done.

Is there any progress done ? Anywhere we can download files ?

@ropo: Can you upload a single rar file with all the pdfs temporary until the major project is complete? Never believed such a nice website would go offline, so i never downloaded them.. Maybe to a big file sharing place ? Or google drive ?

Will upload them and share a link in the coming days.
