All of the greenbooks seem to be available here in a browser-based Flash version (not downloadable). It takes a bit for them to load in Chrome on my computer, but then I can page through them.

http://www.volvotips.com/index.php/2...ervice-manual/

And according to the disclaimer: "Volvotips has the exclusive courtesy of Volvo Car Corporation and Volvo Cars Heritage to publish the Volvo Greenbooks (service manual), parts catalogs and other Volvo-material and publications.

I'm in for $100.00. Worth every penny for all the time it has saved me.

Also, between everyone on this board, the collection of downloaded green
books MUST be present almost in full, at least for 200/700/900 cars, if not
more. So, how about a thread dedicated to weeding out these files in a
distributed fashion. I know I at least have a few pertinent ones on one of
my machines. I'd have to look for them, but I bet everyone has a few, and
although the overlap will be sizable, the full set should be close to complete
for all intents and purposes.

As for the rest of the non-download content from the site (text), google's
cache has it for now, so if you care, grab it from there before it fades out
forever and we all miss out on this piece of community history.

Hi everyone,

A Bruce here. I run ozvolvo.org, the Australian Volvo forums. I'm going to re-host everything I can get hold of under an archive project off the back of Oz Volvo (free for all, in perpetuity) as well as making things available via torrent.

If you have Greenbooks, brochures, or any other technical documentation, please dump them here:

https://www.dropbox.com/request/SJtQR35mGr1zZOEyiU7V

And I'll organise it all in the coming weeks.

Thanks for any help!

Dude, a tip of the hat to you good sir! I'll have to dig thru the archives, think I have some stuff that isn't greenbook but is still awesome reference material.

That's what we get for talking bad about WWD bolbos.

But seriously, thankful he hosted it for so long. Hopefully we can get all that info back up somewhere. Thanks to jamesinc for offering to help.

I've received 5.2GB of technical documentation so far, along with a heap of vintage Volvo print ads, keep it coming!

Edit: don't worry about possibly submitting the same docs as someone else, I can de-duplicate it fairly easily.

That's what simple checksums are for May I recommend distributing in a Git repo? Maybe some hashed source ID in each commit? That way it can be reliably and verifiable distributed with epic redundancy.

Also, allow me to be your mirror, I'd be glad to.

I have a couple accessory install manuals I'd gladly scan and add to a collection as well. Volvo 7/900 cargo cover install manual and a radio bezel manual.

Happy to include whatever you can provide. I've got about 700 documents at the moment, or 9.6GB of data. That's after de-duplicating everything. We're just working out the details of hosting and organising it all.

I think I have a copy of that site from a couple of years ago. I'll have to check my backups...

Edit: Not sure how complete it is, grabbed in 2012 but here's a dropbox link to the archive.

Finally uploaded scanned one of my three docs, here's the Volvo 7/9x5 Luggage Cover installation manual. High quality scan at 600dpi. I'll go ahead and add it to your dropbox.

I sent Fivealive a PM just to see if he was doing okay. Never heard back.

Seems like he somehow feels slighted/offended. Not sure why, and a real shame we don't have the resource anymore. There was a lot of good stuff on that site besides the greenbooks.

Some people have their own reasons to justify their actions, If it was worth his time and personal justification to let us know, i imagine he would have knowing the value he granted to us all. But if someone doesnt want to let it be known, there isnt anything we can do but move on and start over.

Sad to see that site go. Does anyone know where else one can find specs on factory cams formatted the way he had them? I know TB has some specs on the front page, but not all the niggly numbers are there.

It would be great to get all this stuff in a torrent at some point, then it's far more difficult for anyone to take down. If I had my way it would all be public domain by now, the cars it supports are deprecated, and we should have a right to access all pertinent service information.

Hey bruce (jamesinc),

Would you post a link to the page on your forum or to the dropbox or wherever this stuff ends up when you get it all sorted? Thanks a million times
