Where do the parts diagrams come from?

I'm imagining a website which would require parts diagrams like the ones found in all of the parts supplier catalogs/websites.

I'm not looking to sell parts, but I'd like to have the diagrams on my website for explanatory purposes.

There seem to be a three or four different diagram sets that are available and used by most of the suppliers.

Does anyone know who owns these diagrams?

Are they available from the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust?

Thanks for any leads.

Morris Minor Centre in Bath made an in depth catalog years ago with their own part numbering system. It might be that one.

Not sure if I was clear enough with my question . . .


The exploded parts diagrams (the pictorial drawings) . . . the original parts manuals had them.

Who drew those? Who owns those pictures? Are they available to use by anyone?

There also seem to be several other exploded diagrams out there by different "artists."

Who drew those additional sets of diagrams? Who owns them?

Does every parts firm with a pictorial catalog/website have an artist who draws exploded parts diagrams? I doubt it.

Moss, Charles Ware, David Manners Group, etc., etc., etc.--where did they get their sets of diagrams from?

Someone out there must own these and license them for use by others.

Does anyone know who does this?

How about the original repair manual? Dolphnproductions.com free download.
Www.dolphnproductions.com/morrisminor.pdf maybe this will help. I just googled morris minor manual and it was within the first 5 or so results
