M$ Word 2007 or newer.

You can download a 'compatibility pack' if you have an older version:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down...ails.aspx?id=4

Wordpad might do it if you dont have Office/Word & you're on a recent version of Windows.

If you're having trouble opening the file try Open Office. Worked fine for me.

Gary,

The attachment is stretching forum permitted file size limits and I can't download it.

If you send it to me as an email attachment ([email protected]), I'll put it on the forum MediaFire account with a download link in your post.

Graham

Default XK8 Bible Redux

Sorry dudes and dudettes. When I was working I had a real pdf creator so this one is new to me.

This Rev H should be a good one.

Interesting article. I downloaded the original text file but can't open it. It opens just a blank document. So I downloaded the latest PDF. Thanks for taking the time to put this together. I didn't know there were mechanical differences between 2003 and 2006. I thought all 4.2 cars were the same.

NO - this one won't open either. The one you emailed to me only displays the first page.

If you send the original document to my email address, I'll convert it to PDF.
