    I have this as a high quality PDF - all 136Mb of it

    Can't remember where I got it from, but I can post it up somewhere if anyone is desperate for a copy.

    Am I missing something or is it just a collection of title pages?

    "Desparate" is a big word, but it would be nice if you could. Please do!

    Thanks for posting that link, FiatLux. That lubricating section was new to me.

    I only glanced through it so far, but is there anywhere a description of somekind regarding those lubricants A and B?

    No, it just says "the necessary lubricants viz. (A) and (E) oil, can be ordered from us. Other lubricants should not be used" etc..

    I compiled all the JPGs of the manual from Benoit Suaudeau's site into 13 DJVU files, for the individual sections, and added indexes and hyperlinks to make them easy to use. He is hosting them on this page of his site (lower half of page).

    If you don't have a DJVU viewer you can get it here.
