+2 Workshop manual need some missing pages

PostPost by: steve~ » Fri Dec 17, 2010 6:56 pm

Hello, I'm new to this site, I've recently bought a '69 +2 S. I live in the east midlands.

I have an original manual, but some pages, and also two sections are missing ! Does anyone know where I could purchase individual sections, or could someone scan them, or have scans already ? I need the Front Suspension and Rear suspension sections, 14 and 7 pages. And the first 4 pages from the engine section. My manual is a 1969 +2 edition.

I realise the baby elan manual is available in pdf online, does anyone know of a +2 one ?

thanks in advance.

Hi Steve and welcome.

Have a look at http://www.type50.com/plus2/Technical.html

There is the Workshop Manual and the Parts List in the download section both are well worth having.


It appears the workshop manual has been removed from this site. :(

Hi guys, thanks for the responses, that web site looks promising, but has a few dead links? a scan would be great. I'm in no hurry, so whenever you can is fine with me.. my cars laid up for the winter, i did have it out last Sunday though which was good.
