1983 Owners and Repair Manual

Post by seantp » Sat Feb 24, 2018 2:04 pm

I just received a Repair Manual and an Owner's Manual for the 1983 4WD from a kind elderly gentleman. I'm thinking about removing the binding and running it through my sheet-fed scanner. Is there any interest out there? In the mean time if anyone needs reference on a specific repair I could share a few pages.

I'd be interested, my car is an 83 and it'd be great to have access to that. I know there are subtle differences in the manuals and the wiring diagrams and colors may be different. I found an fsm for an 84 that is a little different than the 85 one on here and has photos instead of illustrations in some sections, though the illustrations are probably easier to decipher. I didn't think about using a feed scanner like that, I suppose you could hole punch it and put it in a 3 ring binder when you were done.

OK! Sorry, I didn't get a notification of these replies and things have been hectic with the new to me Tercel. I will get scanning.

that repair manual is for the 2wd sedan, engine and front end repairs should be valid, but not much else.

the owner's manual is for the 4wd.
'87 Tercel 4wd SR5 (current engine swap project)
'84 Tercel 4wd (daily driver, with on going mods)
'92 Mazda MPV 4wd (wife's daily driver)
'85 Tercel 4wd DLX auto(daughter's daily driver)
'01 Honda Civic (other daughter's daily driver)
