The closest you will find is the 1989 D21 FSM here: http://www.nicoclub.com/FSM/hardbody/d21_truck_1989.pdf

The 1989 Pathfinder has exactly the same mechanics as a 1989 Hardbody, and differences between truck & body styles are even mentioned in the manual I believe.

Thanks a lot. This is exactly what i want! But now another question. As I understood suspension system and axle is the same till 1995. is it correct? Can I change some parts by 1995 Model?

I don't know the answer to that question. You will probably have better luck posting your question on NPORA, there are a lot more WD21 Pathfinder (1986.5-1995) owners there than here.

At least with the '87s, there were some chassis differences between the PF and the hardbody. The PF rear suspension was
coils and five links, the HB was Hotchkiss (leaf springs that also located the axle for and aft). The PF and HB had one
FSM in '87.

OP: where are you? AFAIK, in the US, the 4 cylinder was only available in the '87 E model, which was only available the first
few weeks of the model run. I've seen two Es ever.

Also, there were some differences in the chassis from year to year. '87s had drum rear brakes. '95s had four-wheel disks.
There was no two-wheel drive in '87. '87s were two-door, the four-door came later, and I think eventually the two-door
went away.

This article has some information regarding the 2-door to 4-door switchover and some other changes, amongst other things.
