ADC_Keywords: Surveys ; Pulsars Keywords: surveys - pulsars: general Abstract: The Parkes multibeam pulsar survey has led to the discovery of more than 700 pulsars. In this paper, we provide timing solutions, flux densities and pulse profiles for 180 of these new discoveries. Two pulsars, PSRs J17362843 and J18470130, have rotational periods P>6s and are therefore among the slowest rotating radio pulsars known. Conversely, with P=1.8ms, PSR J18431113 has the third-shortest period of pulsars currently known. This pulsar and PSR J1905+0400 (P=3.8ms) are both solitary. We also provide orbital parameters for a new binary system, PSR J14205625, which has P=34ms, an orbital period of 40d and a minimum companion mass of 0.4M. The 10°-wide strip along the Galactic plane that was surveyed is known to contain 264 radio pulsars that were discovered prior to the multibeam pulsar survey. We have redetected almost all of these pulsars and provide new dispersion measure values and flux densities at 20cm for the redetected pulsars. Description: The pulsars detailed in this paper have been observed multiple (typically around 25) times for at least one year using the Parkes 64-m, the 305-m Arecibo and/or the 76-m Lovell telescopes.
