Free Ford Service Manuals Online

Just ran across these, don't know if anybody's posted them.
They're free downloadable CD/DVD's and the owners of the site just ask for a donation to keep the site running.

That link as been around for over a year, and been posted here before -- though it bears repeating.

Many of us have these manuals.

The DVD ones are a pain -- some require double-layer discs and you have set your system date (particularly the year) back to use them. The DVD's have built in "expiration dates" and you have to fool the software into working. FYI: if you set your clock back and forget to set it right again, you may have anti-virus and other software faults next boot up.

If you downloaded a ISO file you have to burn it to a disc first.

It accepted the log-in info but I get a message about how it's unable to validate my information. It does that with any link I try.
