So you bought your car and it didn’t come with the Assembly Manual. Don’t worry, this problem has been brought up numerous time before and our members always offer a copy. The problem is, most of us don’t own a big fancy copying machine and the postage and paper cost alone are enough to discourage anyone from providing too many copies.
Our members have compiled several original Owners and Assembly Manuals from the various manufactures and we have scanned them into PDF files so you can easily download and print your own copy. In addition, members have written technical articles and compiled links to parts suppliers, clubs, and more.
If you have a manual that we do not, or any other resources to help your fellow MG TD Replica owners, please contact the webmaster.
