Are you printing the guide or delivering in .PDF format, or something else?
Do the drawings have to stay full-size or can you reduce them, like to
11x17 so they'd fit better?

My first thought is to create an FM document template with 11x17
pages. Then create a discrete FM file for each drawing, shrink each
drawing to fit the 11x17 page size, and add these files to your FM
book file wherever they're supposed to go.
