I've made an arrangement with Keri, and we will start working on our version of the manual. It won't be an exact translation but there will be parts out of the manulas. We will write it for today's Trabant collector. For example the book would say to remove the engine air fan bearing use the .....number puller... We will say the same thing with the addition that according to our knowlage nobody has ever been able to remove the bearings without damaging the plastic fan itself. We will include advises what we have figured out on our own. Take it or leave it. I think who takes upon himself to repair his own car will appercipiate advises from others who did it before. If we touch an issue where oppinions are wastly different we will address our oppinion and our findings and let the reader decide. Prime example would be the oil to be used in a Trabant gas tank... So I'll start on it soon, chapter by chapter. I think we will have it printed out and will see what to do with it. Not too suprisingly the local Trabant collectors are just as cheap as the ones I know in Hungary. So asking money for a shop manual would not go too far I think. I probably would give a hard copy to those who sign up to the site or become a member to the Trabant club. (I know we don't have one yet but that could change) It will take quite a bit of effort to make this manual happen, so you will have time to figure out what to do with it. But mean while if anyone have the need to read something out of the manual, I'm willing to work on that revelent part what someone needs, for example the Carburetor or transmission... We will work on one chapter at a time with Keri, so the order won't matter. So if you have a request, let us know.
