Here is the link:
http://tercel4wd.com/fsm/1985T4WD.pdf

Just left-click and it will pop up in a minute or two. Then left-click on the little blue icon at the top left (the one to the left of the 'printer' icon) and save to your desktop.

I will make this as a sticky for the General Forum as well.

I just picked up a 7" tablet, and the service manual is a dream to work with. I got a free book reader app called Aldiko, and I can just touch what I'm looking for in the table of contents and it takes me right there!

Now THAT is cool!
It sure beats going out to the car with a looseleaf binder (my official Toy FSM fell apart long ago, so I used a hole punch).

Tom, are FSM's available this way for years besides 1985? I was under the impression that there were emission system changes from year to year. Could I be wrong?

Stan - AFAIK, the FSM on the site covers all ...
There are some (to me, anyway) minor changes in grille and obviously front lights for the '87-8 models.
The '83-4 versions used different trans/rear diff ratios.
It is possible that there are other minor changes, but they escape me; I've compared the '85 FSM here with the '86 paper FSM I bought back in '05 when I got Goldie, and I've frankly not noticed any differences.
