I was looking at my Chiltons for the truck, and the process seemed rasonable for an amature mechanic (i.e., I have worked on many engines, but don't have hydraulic lifts and I will have to buy a crankshaft pulley removal tool). Is my impression correct?
Also, I am thinking of getting the Factory Service Manuals, as the Chiltons seems a bit sparse on the nitty gritty. Any thoughts?
In North America the 22R & 22R-E s are used in the following:
1981-82 Toyota Corona
1981-87 Toyota pickup (up to 1990 on 2wd)
1984-87 Toyota 4-Runner
22R-E (22REC=California emissions=extra charcoal canister)
1985-95 Toyota pickup
1985-95 Toyota 4-Runner
22RTE (Turbo EFI)
1985-87 Toyota 4-Runner
1985-87 Toyota pickup

1)buy a used one off e-bay
2)some Toyota dealerships may give you one or sell it for $10-20 (used) as most Toyota dealerships don't repair many old Toyotas and no longer need the service manual
3)some public libraries sell their old books as they are not in demand any longer
4)some free buy & sell classified papers,websites and bulletin boards may have some used ones for sale
5)some junk yards may have one laying around
6)some Toyota specialty garages may have one laying around and no longer use it as the vehicle may be too old and those mechanics probably have so much experience that they could publish their own factory service manual with corrections and "real world repair tips"
7)if someone has the FSM maybe they could scan all of the pages and post it on a site for all of us to download or view.
For scanned pages of factory service manuals for other engines:
then click on “AARC” or “Auto repair reference center”
