Explorer Service Manual is now in print
« on: March 07, 2013, 07:17:49 PM »
Hi,
The Explorer Service Manual is finished and I have started a print run.

Before anyone makes a firm commitment to buy, I’d like to distribute some sample pages, which are available on my Dropbox site.

update: links now dead as final product now in print

The finished article is printed on 80gsm paper, double sided, wire bound so that it will open out completely flat and with acetate front and back covers so that it is ‘wipe clean’.

It sells for £19.95 plus postage & packing costs of £4 – UK / £6 – Europe / £8 – Rest of World. Payment by Paypal please or alternatively cash on collection from Bath UK.

Please get in touch either by Private Message or by email to explorer.service.manual@gmail.com to register your interest, and please state your country for shipping.

If PMing please also include your Paypal email address, which will also be used to confirm to you when your manual is despatched and also to advise you if the manual is up-issued for any reason.
 
Thank you,
Mark Barrett

It seems to me you have done a good job with this manual.
But I got concerned when I saw this one, in the first part: 2.3 Greasing Threads
Triumph’s own manual provides torque wrench settings for dry threads. To prevent corrosion I
apply grease to most screw threads prior to re-assembly.

To my knowledge grease should never be used, the grease may have unwanted loosening of the bolt as consequence.
I use copper paste to avoid corrosion and sticking bolts, but never grease.

Am I far off, or is it language problems? Is copper paste regarded as grease?

Joachim....Yes Copper paste is generally considered a grease or anti seizure compound, I think Im correct in saying that if you scroll through the examples of the manual posted by Mark you will see that this issue is covered there with an explanation about torque values in relation to dry thread & what do do when torquing lubricated threads.
