Thanks all, I am well aware of my options on what I can do with the data file. Right now I'm just trying to get the right one. The manual I have is adequate but using a magnifying glass is a bit of a pain. The lighting is not so great in the garage. Photocopying and enlarging causes blurring so that's out and while my photoshop skills aren't too bad, splicing the pic's together into a single document would be a major pain.
I've installed and troubleshot advanced communication equipment for 40 years and know that there can be changes from one batch (year) to the next. Variances in colour code and pin-outs make the wrong wiring plans worse than useless. Yes when troubleshooting you can trace 95% of that stuff out but that's a slow and ineffective method best left for 1950's tractors. When problems are serious I also like a paper copy that can be written on while going through the process.
Just seems strange I can locate almost every other year except 2011. The dealer should have that on their electronic copy of the manual but I doubt my local one would put a few pages on a memory stick for me. If nothing comes up I'll start with a 2012 and take the time to visually verify everything. That will take a few hours but it would be worth it to me to do that. May even get a poster made and stick in on the garage wall. I'd like to have that "just in case" but with any luck I'll never have to use it and it will remain a nice piece of art for the work space.
Thanks again for all your input lady and gents.
Not all those who wander are lost.
