I just got a toyota factory service manual for my 86 truck. It is 100 times better than that haynes manual I have, an about 3 times the size its just so nice to actually have a manual thats so useful, and full of details.
After using the real thing it is hard to go back to the aftermarket manuals. That is why I have always bought the factory manual when I got another vehicle. Usually keep the manual when I trade or sell the vehicle. Probably should look for someone who could use the old ones.
The Factory service manual is for your year, and there is one for every year. It covers the entire truck, and there is a big section on the engine, pretty much everything you'd need to know, but I don't think you can just get one that covers only the engine. If you look on ebay there usually is one or two on there, and if not somebody on there might have one.
OK, I called the local Toyota dealer and they don't stock/sell manuals. I did an internet search and all I could find was Haynes and Chilton. Did not find one on ebay either. Any ideas? Want to scan the 500+ pages of yours and post it here for me:lol: .
BTW Reading feedback on the seller, these are photocopied manuals and NOT originals. Do I care? Not really, I just want the information that is included inside. Also looks like 3-4 weeks for shipping is common. $70 plus $10 for shipping! Oh well, I will recover those charges by doing repairs myself.
I had someone (alltrac165) reply to another post of mine that might help. Here is that post. The link appeared to have promise but I have yet to "subscribe".
:You can try techinfo.toyota.com
You can sign up for one day and print out the entire manual or just the parts you need. Lots cheaper than buying one. If you have other Toyotas, you can print the manuals out for them too." copied from another posting.
