The whole site is 4.5gB of data? That is less than one side of a DVD. Maybe you could make a DVD available in the meantime? Or a flash drive? They are cost effective ways to share that info. I would get one.

As finishing the archive portal off has taken ages, I'm happy to release the raw file list, which is 9GB, however it comes with a big grain of salt, which is that a lot of the file names will tell you absolutely nothing about what's in the file.

https://ozvolvo.org/archive/

If you are using the site please consider also getting in touch to help fill in the remaining missing data in our "wtf is this file" spreadsheet, though when the full portal goes online it will contain a mechanism for allowing you to fill in missing/wrong data also.

I did get a lot of work done on the portal while I was on holidays over the Xmas/NY period, though in true TB fashion I got distracted by a 245 that I spent 6 days working on in the summer heat (it got up to a blistering 47C/117F the other day, hot even by Australian standards!)

Solidgold069, if you are handy with PHP I'd be happy to take on some help with this project.

I used software to do a site rip of the whole site a few years ago. From what I can tell I have most of the html stuff, and a few more things that i found elsewhere i think. Zip files of wiring diagrams for 200, 700, 900, Amazon and more.
It is a lot of info. I am going through what i see you have and comparing my info. My folder is over 7 gigs. I also have a copy of vadis somewhere. It is really the html i don't know if you have right now, because many of the pages are full of info not in the greenbooks. IE:

K-Jet.org
Mechanical Fuel Injection Power!
K-Jet Debugging Guide

There are a lot of different things that can go wrong with a mechanical fuel injection system. I will try to cover the most common symptoms and their usual suspects. I have included some basic info for testing things common to all cars (like the throttle body sticking) but this mainly covers K-Jet related problems. This is not intended to be a full course in fixing cars in general, so I?m not going to cover how to check your spark plugs or distributor cap and rotor or reset your timing belt.

Note: READ THE CI GREENBOOKS. Also, please refer to the K-Jet in Detail article for diagrams and descriptions of the K-Jet components.

Note: If you have not replaced your engine wiring harness (1980 to 1987 cars) replace it first. It can cause a lot of problems on its own. Due to the random nature of wire breakdown, the problems associated with a bad wiring harness can take almost any form. If you want to do it on the cheap, read this article.
Difficulty starting engine warm or cold

1) Vacuum leaks
2) Other air leaks
3) Airflow sensor plate out of adjustment or sticking
4) Fuel distributor clogged
5) Low fuel pressure (line pressure)
. a) bad fuses or fuse block
. b) bad fuel pump relay
. c) bad fuel pump check valve
. d) clogged fuel filter
. e) bad fuel pump
. f) out of gas
. g) line pressure regulator out of adjustment
Difficulty Starting Engine Only When Cold

1) Control pressure too high
2) Auxiliary air valve or idle air motor not working or sticking
3) Problem with cold start injector / thermal time switch circuit
Difficulty Starting Engine Only When Warm

1) Cold start injector stuck open or leaking
2) Control pressure too high or too low
3) Regular fuel injectors leaking
4) Wrong rest pressure
Idle fluctuates or ?hunts,? surging in gears 1-4, abnormally high idle

1) Idle air motor not working properly
2) Throttle plate improperly adjusted
3) Bad wiring to CIS Computer
4) Vacuum leaks
Random no-start, or will not start unless left in Key Position II for a few minutes

1) Wiring problem at ballast resistor
2) Wiring problem at starter or coil
Difficulty starting engine warm or cold

If you turn the key and NOTHING happens, you probably have a dead battery or the wires that connect to the starter solenoid are disconnected. However, if you turn the key and the starter motor engages and the engine turns over but just won?t start, here are some common causes of this:

1) Vacuum leaks: The K-Jet system is very sensitive to vacuum leaks. It is dependent on vacuum lines due to the mechanical nature of the system. Unlike some EFI systems, K-Jet cannot compensate for vacuum leaks. If there are air leaks in the system, more air is getting to the engine than is being measured by the air flow sensor plate. Because of this the air/fuel mixture is lean meaning that there is too much air in the mixture. Vacuum leaks can also cause abnormally high idle problems, as well as many other weird symptoms.

The easiest way to check for vacuum leaks is to look. Check out your vacuum hoses. Are they all connected? Are any cracked or broken? Are they hooked up like the diagram under the hood shows (Vacuum hose routing sticker)?

Vacuum hose is cheap so it?s a good idea to just replace all the lines when you get your Volvo. Major vacuum lines, like those coming from the idle air motor, the auxiliary air valve, or the brake booster, will make a loud POP! the first time they come off, and after that the car won?t start at all.

Tips for preventing vacuum leaks:

Always keep your vacuum lines in good condition.
Use the right size of vacuum lines (metric!).
When you replace them, use small hose clamps or cable ties to make sure that they are tight and don?t pop off.
Use quality (OEM Volvo) gaskets (intake manifold, throttle body).

2) Other air leaks: If you can actually get the car running, but it runs rough or has trouble starting, you can check for air leaks at the intake manifold gasket (where the intake manifold attaches to the head) or at the throttle body gasket (where the throttle body attaches to the intake manifold) or at the injector seals (where the fuel injectors are inserted into the engine.)

Check for air leaks at these places by spraying a flammable solvent (such as WD-40 or carb cleaner) around the gasket or seals. If the idle of the car speeds up, it means the engine just sucked in that flammable solvent through an air leak.

To fix these problems, you probably need a new gasket or new injector O-Rings. These are also inexpensive parts, even from the Volvo dealer.

3) Airflow sensor plate out of adjustment or sticking: This is a very unlikely scenario, but it can happen. Basically, you have to take your fuel distributor and air flow sensor apart and re-calibrate it. Like I said, very unlikely that this would happen.

4) Fuel distributor clogged: Again, this is an unlikely scenario, but it can happen. Mostly it is caused by some contaminant in the fuel caused by a low quality fuel filter or by someone putting sugar in your gas tank. Anyway, fixing this requires dismantling the fuel distributor and cleaning it all out with carb cleaner or the like.

5) Low fuel pressure (line pressure): Low line pressure means that not enough fuel is making it to your fuel distributor. This could be caused by many different things, which I will go over in detail.

a) bad fuses or fuse block
Believe it or not, bad fuses account for a large number of K-Jet no-start conditions. The main fuel pump and the in-tank fuel pump are fused and if one of these two fuses is blown or poorly connected, your fuel pump won?t work. The best way to remedy this is preventative maintenance. Your fuse panel is located behind a plastic panel to the left of the driver?s left leg, below the steering wheel and in front of the driver?s seat.

With the battery disconnected (so you don?t kill yourself) remove all the fuses in the fuse block and scrub all of the terminals with a wire brush. You can get a wire brush about the size of a toothbrush that is perfect for this at any hardware store for about $1. Once all the terminals are clean, put the fuses back in with the right amperage ratings in the right spots. Replace any fuses that are corroded or burnt.

That is just a section of the page.

Here is the txt for the 200 greenbooks page
It has lots of info that may help with the numerical file name problem.
I will try to make a zip file i can send you stripped of the pdfs to save bandwidth, of all the site files i have.

I'm not planning to host VADIS or VIDA on the archive site, I think with the old Greenbooks Volvo probably don't care, but they will almost certainly issue a takedown notice over pirated software.

Understandably. My bigger question is if anyone else has provided the k-jet.org html files that link file descriptions and categories to file names, or the tutorials from the site. They could be made to work in a sandbox. Or even run a search and replace operation on the files to replace the http address with a local path.

With mintyfresh.
All of the greenbooks seem to be available here in a browser-based Flash version (not downloadable). It takes a bit for them to load in Chrome on my computer, but then I can page through them.

http://www.volvotips.com/index.php/240-260/volvo-240-260-service-manual/

And according to the disclaimer: "Volvotips has the exclusive courtesy of Volvo Car Corporation and Volvo Cars Heritage to publish the Volvo Greenbooks (service manual), parts catalogs and other Volvo-material and publications. Commercial use and publishing at other websites of these items is prohibited."


these are pretty easy to dump from flash into jpeg then compile into pdf. i've dumped some of the chapters into pdf. i'm slowly working on dumping the rest. i find flash infuriating.

A bit late to the game as aI did not realize k-jet.org is gone until now.

I made a full page mirror for offline use on my car diag PC in the garage (****ty internet reception), date 06/24/2016.
It's about 5.7GB uncompressed.

I'd be glad to host this on DropBox or OneDrive, or we could get a BT going.

Gitlab.com free repos, private or public, 10 gig each. Can easily host the whole lot in a markdown dir based structure, or as is.

git init .
git add .
git commit -m "An old website"
git remote add origin <url>
git push -u origin master

Post a link here, and it can become distributed within hours.

Are there any updates on this? is it being hosted or able to be Downloaded. I did check oz Volvo link but as he said there is no way of knowing until you open it. But if that is what we have then that is what i will do.

And Volvotips is awful to navigate and read off of especially on a mobile device.

The OzVolvo archive is really extensive and continues to grow. I've been trying to get everything, because I fear it may not be up forever. I thought I understood how they were organizing everything, but I have found 200 model stuff all over the place. I have been renaming it after downloading it. Most of it was scanned at super high quality - large files.

How is the project coming, do you need help? I have a little web development experience. I could help with going through the files and giving them file names representative of what is in the file.

Hey, yeah, to be honest after starting this I changed job and haven't had time to finish it in forever. A lot of work has been done but it still needs a proper front-end to display it (and a bunch of files aren't marked up still).

If you're confident with it, I'd be chill even if you wanted to lead the project from here on out. Oz Volvo has the budget to host everything.

If you're interested, send me a PM.
