    One may e-mail really large files thru google drive right from your email (over 20mb) if the recipient has google they can read it and download it. Sender gets to pick who may view it.

    Frank,

    May need to get my son to help with this. The parts manual is 50+ MEG. I got all the other 4 books sent, had to reduce on. But even after reducing the parts book, it was tooooooo large. Maybe I can split the book! Will try that now.

    You plain are NOT going to screw up a thing, Brother Tracer.

    It's all good.

    All of us here are behind you, through the Good, the Bad (if the gods will it), and even the Ugly (we've all been there)!

    And besides, don't want all this good popcorn going to waste...

    Guy I have all the texts downloaded and they're stored on my desk top. I think I need to start looking for someone to translate these manuals into English. Should I copy them on a disc and have them translated by a reliable party, and then printed in English for the mechanics? Then I can down load them off the disc and onto the Steel Soldiers TM section. Your thoughts! Brother Ahab keep that popcorn popping we aint crossed the finish line yet.

    You may need to rob a bank to pay for translation of those books. Translating is hard work. And when its technical, it's times 3 hard. I might start with just the chapters you need. First find out what it costs. Then think about what you want to do. Over the years, people over here always wanted me to translate German to English. My wife and I tried to do it a few times. I would rather pick Cotten. There are so many words in both languages that simply do not exist in the other, you can go crazy. When I went to trade school here, I tried to translate everything. I used three dictionary's, and two technical, (electro technical) dictionary's. Didn't take long, and I tossed them all away, and learned it all in German. I haven't the slightest idea what some things are in English.

    I know and use several people who do this for their profession. They ain't cheap. I know several who do it under the table. On weekends and at nights. Semi formal. No taxes paid. They ain't cheap. So look around first.

    The parts TM, when I get it broken into two parts, will be the easy stuff. All you need to translate are page headings and such. Maybe a few other things. I will take a look at it. I have never used a German army TM before, so should be interesting. Chris and I will try to translate things for you.

    Yeah, that might want a Plan B from you, Mr. Tracer.

    Translating the Bible from Hebrew to Greek needed 72 translators, and the TM here sounds like it might have some Scriptural dimensions.

    God only knows how long it took those 72 (but if you're on good terms and ask, He might share).

    PS - If you decide to use those 72 translators (they might know German), don't hire them on a Saturday, that's time-and-half (it's the Sabbath), it might get pricey.

    Just Had A Brain fart. Asked someone in TACOM if the army bought English TM's for the trucks. He asked me for the NSN of the truck. There should be a data plat with a NSN on it someplace.
