The Factory Service (or Repair) Manual (FSM) is well worth the
investment, it may come in one or more volumes (early years tend to be
single, later years are multi-volume) You'll likely recover the manual
investment on the first problem diagnosis or repair you do using it.
You can buy the original Factory Service Manual (FSM) at:
Material Distribution Center
750 West Victoria St
Rancho Dominguez/Compton, CA 90220-5538 USA
(outside CA)(M-F: 7-5 PST)
1-800-443-7656 (inside CA)
1-310-818-4630 (in or outside CA)
The p/n for my 1985 Truck & 4Runner FSM is 36246A
Any public library in your area would have the Factory service manual,
as well as the Haynes, Chilton, Mitchell and Toyota repair books.
There are also numerous copies available on-line, with links posted on
many of the Toyota 4WD forums.
You can also use your faviroite search engine to look for copies as
well. I won't put those links up on this page as they often move around
and I don't want to make it easier for the IP police to locate and
remove those on-line copies. I, myself, purchased a used hard copy of
the FSM and have a scanned copy (in PDF form) that I carry on my laptop
on long trips and for quick reference checks.
