Kevin, I just uploaded two Packard photos. I got the message that they were received but I cannot find them and the gallery does not list them. Joel

Joel, sorry about that I didnt have the permissions set up correctly. The are visible now.

The pics were sitting in a holding bin waiting for me to approve them. I fixed it now so everyone can upload without me having to approve them. The less work I have to do the better.

Thanks for the nice pics!

kev,

nice job setting up this site and sharing this info. i am having trouble bringing up some of the 1949 STB's. i sometimes get a blank screen and then have had it hang up Internet explorer. i downloaded adobe 7.7 but it still seems to lock up. i may have a problem with my system but i thought i'd check with you.

thanks
frank

Because these were all scanned at 300 dpi to make them very clear when re-printed, the files are pretty large. and Adobe can have problems trying to open these large files across the internet. If you have a slow connection it compounds the problem.

I recommend to everyone to Right Click on the Links and do a "Save Target As" this will download the PDF file(s) to your PC rather than trying to open and view the file across the web. Once downloaded, then you can open them up and print them whenever you want. If you have a dial-up or slow connection, then I strongly recommend that you do the Save Target procedure above.

This was also the reason I put each STB up as its own file rather than a single HUGE file.

I could have made these low-res versions that are easy to view on the web, but I wanted everyone to be able to print clear readable copies that they could take into the garage with them.

I hope this helps.

thanks kev,
i took your advice and saved them prior to viewing and it worked great. i'll see if i can scan my 1949 owners manual at work when i have time. i have access to a nice scanner and can produce pages in PDF format. it is about 47 pages. i'll see how it comes out and email it to you if ok.
