You're all in luck. I have saved all the JPGs and have converted it into a 111 page pdf.

Now, the question is who wants it and who can host it?

That was really cool of you to save all the pages as a single PDF... I'd ask for a copy too but I recently got me a FSM off ebay for the '86 models. Maybe when I get the time to scan all the pages you can convert it to a single PDF so it can be passed around. Mine has been well used tho and the electrical section is mostly oil stained so the scan quality of those 10 to 20 pages might come out poor, the rest of the book is just fine tho. I also have a Hollander Interchange book that covers from the early 60's to 1987 model year imports, but that one has about 500 or so pages...

I also bought and downloaded scan copy of service manual from Tradebit. It's around 190MB single file. Whomever scanned it in first place skipped couple of lines on top of each page from chapter 5 onwards. I may upload it to somewhere (rapidshare or like) if there's interest. I Don't think (but not sure) it is illegal to share.

I doubt it's illegal to share these manuals since we're talking about a truck that's between 26 and 32 years old... and really, if anyone's doing anything illegal, it would be the one who's selling the scanned copies if they didn't get permission from Nissan to sell the copies... then Nissan would have to be interested in persuing it, which I also doubt due to the age of these trucks etc...

Hey there. I was wondering if you could e-mail me the pdf manual when you have a chance. I'd appreciate it very much. I'll send you my e-mail address in a PM to avoid spammers. Thanks.

Have you guys tried the autozone repair manuals? They're free and all you have to do is register with them.
