    What do you think is the best Manual for us rookies? I have a Haynes but it doesn't seem very user friendly or maybe outdated? What do you use?

    For my FJ40 I find the factory Toyota manuals to be the most useful. Having swapped in 350s I also use the chevy truck manual heavily too.

    Factory manual? Damn I didn't even think of that! With a '73 I guess I'm in the aftermarket mindset. Thanks for getting me back on track. Sometimes we all need a good wack upside the dome.

    I like my Haynes manual - I'llgo to it for basics, and if the problem is really crazy, then I go to the factory manual.

    The Chilton manual stinks. The one I have covers about a 75 year period and 2.4 million differnt models. Steer clear.

    Best thing to do is to buy them all. I have a lg. library of books aout all the Cruisers I have. I fine it helpful to be able to compare info book to book. OEM is essential!
