It's not hard at all. It's a single screw that holds it down if i remember right. Here is an article about changing a timing chain. You obviously would skip all of the steps involved in chaning the timing set but it does talk about pulling the distributor. Only do the step that involve the distributor. Make sure you set the engine to TDC on the compression stroke before you begin or you'll have a lot of fun trying to get things right again.

Also you should look into buying a Toyota Factory Service Manual. I have one for my 85 and it has been more useful than any manual i've ever looked at.

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.
