I've decided to give scanning and a 'sympathetic restoration' of a good copy of the original Honda 1300 Coupe Shop Manual a go.

I've attached a pdf of 4 pages with the front cover, a near blank "page 2", a text only page and a page with photos. I'll be including the blank pages as in the original so that duplex printing won't muck up pagination. The test pdf is not in actual page order.

The paper size is Japanese B5 (7.2 x 10.1 inches, 182 x 257 mm ~ or so the web tells me) the scans are roughly 300 dpi and 2163 x 3034 pixels. This is close to the ISO size B5, maybe it's really the same, but as most will be printing on A4 I'd like to ask the question of whether I should allow extra margins. My temptation is to leave it original size. I've edited the pages to give near "pure white" background while maintaining the photo clarity.

This will be a sporadic long-term project. In the meantime could a few of you try duplex printing and let me know your thoughs on size and clarity?
