The URL ends at .p rather than .pdf, but even if I add the two characters it returns a 404 error. The first link works fine.

Barry and Jonathan, I haven’t forgotten, my wife just needs the time to scan it.

Cheers Paul

Hi Paul,

Emails/pdfs received. Thanks very much for doing this. Excellent quality scanning.

I haven't read it through yet but a quick browse shows there's certainly a few things I haven't come across before.

The loom diagram in the main manual pdf appears to tally closely with the car as far as I can see, but the wiring diagram in the other pdf is the same as the one in the 1995 guide and doesn't cover the 956i ECU and has the wrong fuse layout. I suspect this was acquired separately?

As you're an original owner/builder I'm guessing there simply never was a wiring diagram for the VX 8V and this was the point where Caterham switched from the rather difficult to read circuit diagrams to the exceptionally difficult to decode loom manufacturing diagrams!

Thanks again,

Barry

And thanks from me, and also very impressed with the quality.

I'll have a look at the wiring diagrams. (But the first K Guides had the old style diagram!)

"(But the first K Guides had the old style diagram!)"

Surely that's to be expected as the first K Guides must have been produced in 1992 (1.4)  and so  pre-date the VX 8V (1997) ?

Cheers

Oops!

Just seen this.

The reason the link does not work is that it's a 2001 assembly guide and the link should be

http://www.regins.dk/Caterham/Assembly_Guide_2001.pdf

 

Sorry!!!!

Now if the newly scanned AG is available I can easily host it on my server and post a link.

There's a few of those on the server already.

Sorry. I'm an idiot.

Server (and file name) is case sensitive

Should work now
