You mean the download itself doesn't work, or you can't open them once you've downloaded?
First, the download is a zip file so, you need WinZip or similar to unzip them in your computer. Second, the 3 view files are in .DWG/DXF format so you must have AutoCAD or similar to open them. There are links on the Van's download site for free WinZip/AutoCAD programs.

Yep - tried all that. Unzip is not the problem, the stupid DWG/DXF format is kicking me.

Still looking for simple PDF files.

If Terry didn't already cover it, let me know. I digitized them for designing my artwork.

Default Draft Sight

You could also get a software called Draft Sight, itís a free download from Dassault Systems, the same people that make Solidworks. Itís pretty much a copy of AutoCAD (all commands are the same in every way if you are familiar with that software). Then you can manipulate the drawings if youíd like.

Or, if you are an EAA member, you can get the full Solidworks license through EAA. Quite a steep learning curve though.

Dassault also has a free program called eDrawings, which is a CAD viewer. I believe it also handles the Autocad files. Good thing about eDrawings is that it also runs on Mac (or even mobile phones). http://www.edrawingsviewer.com
