    I'm searching and reading posts looking for the spacings for the spark plugs. I am ready to learn how to do stuff to my newly obtained LC, but I realize I will need a FSM. Where can I get one? Can I download for free somewhere? Thank, I'm still searching this site...:wrench:

    Most manuals you see that are called "repair" manuals are merely a Haynes or such.

    And yes, they are one and the same: Factory Service Manual.

    Don't be fooled by some of the titles that are flung about on the interwebs. :cheers:

    Has anyone downloaded the FSM to sell it on an organized CD? I would prefer an electronic form without having to go through the hassle of downloading, but I'm willing to pay for someone elses hassle.

    1) Don't forget information like that (along with all fluid capacities & specifications, etc.) is in the owner's manual, which hopefully you have.

    2) FSM (and owner's manual) available direct from Toyota Publications USA (google it).
