    It has taken me some time to assemble these books and learn about Toyota's and I'm only trying to help others by getting them up to speed.

    I don't claim to know, and I don't claim these books to know it all but, if you go and get these books it will save you loads fo time:

    1: asking question's
    2: getting usefull information, quickly, and on hand
    3: not tieing up some one elses time asking relatively obvious questions
    4: this makes you self sufficient.
    5: and on and on and on.


    I recommend:

    Chilton's Manual: I have and recommend the two both 1970-88 and 1988-96. I had to order myne at a book store and wait but hey.
    Torque specs.
    cam specs.
    H.P/Torque spec's on all motor's
    Bore x stroke

    Toyota Truck and LandCruiser owner's bible: I have found alot of usefull info here but I'd say it's just not what you'd expect for the title.
    V8 swaps
    card to efi swap
    Super charger


    Advanced Adaptors Buyer's Guide: Awsome absolutly awsome every thing from gear ratio's to trannie swaps, motor swaps. and it is.... free, call them give them your address, wait, when you get it you wont put it down for weeks.
    Just get it, trust me.
    IT'S FREE
    F*R*E*E*

    Downey: lots of aftermarket parts and the info reguarding them. They don't argue or bicker with there competators.
    Axle code's


    NorthWest off-road specialties, INC: very large assortment of aftermarket parts, some not availible by other supliers. They DO argue and bicker with there competators.


    LC engineering: WHoley cow, get it you'll be glad you did, I have an old one.
    Turbo kit's
    EFI kit's
    the new one's have SUPER CHARGER kit's in it. :)
    side draft's
    cam's

    Man-A-Fre: lot's of LandCriuser aftermarket and o.e.m parts I ordered myne along time ago for free but don't know if this still hold's true.
    Body part's
    O.E.M part's
    O.M.Emu and Man-A-Fre lift's


    FSM: or Factory Service Manual: Are to my knowlage, because I have no personal experience with these, to be the best for any technical or mechanical information.

    Hays Manual's: all are great for starting and maintaining fires.
    The first one (and last) I ever had convinlently left out part's of a particular disassembly just what I needed 75miles away from the nearest anything and me with no running vehical having to depend on some one else (Grandma) for transportation.
    Make sure you have matche's
    lighter fluid

    P.S I love you Granny..........:crybaby:

    I Highly recommend.....

    IH8Mud.com Forum, very insightful for ALL Toyota 4x4s- more info than all those books put together.

    Discussions/comparisons on parts, OEM/Aftermarket.
    Advice/assistance.
    Nat's thurs night pics.
    Parts availabilty new/used.
    Always open-24/7 tech advice.
    Repair advice- preventitive maintenance.
    Tech sections that you can find NO-where else.

    (good books on your list though- I have most including almost all Downeys and Northwest offroad from their begining) a must have for your reading collection.



    All "maynase" as Wristpin put it.....Mayonaise?;)

    I'm so glad every on likes ganging up on me for my obviously stupid advise

    I am now going to start several threads so the info is here and not in a book for some one to foolishly buy.

    First

    What are the firing orders for all toyota motors?

    What are all the oil pressures for all the toyota motors?

    How do you change a V6 Water pump?

    All you hate wasting thread space so.......
