I was able to find my fsm from http://used.addall.com/ for a bit cheaper ($7) than most are going for on ebay. also found the correct year (with sd25, instead of buying one off ebay that didn't cover this engine, or waiting and asking more questions here)

hard to figure out the search to only show fsm and not chiltons though..

1981 Maxima Diesel Supplement, Auction 230193642680, ends Nov-25-07 17:16:20 PST
This is a good Datsun 810 Diesel shop manual. Used with the standard 810 shop manual. This covers everything specific to the LD28 engined 810.

PayPal or money order please plus $8.50 air mail to the US. Canadians email me your postal code for a quote.

Worth noting that this is only a supplement, not the main manual. One year only, did Nissan do this: 1981.

You are looking at an OEM used 1982 Datsun Pick Up Truck Service Manual. This manual is printed by Nissan Motor Co. and covers the model 720 Series. The manual covers drivetrain, electrical, suspension, HVAC, brakes, transmission, differential, tune up, specs, etc. The manual is in very good condition but the cover does show some wear. Buyer pays $6.50 shipping. All items paid by check will be held for 10 business days before shipping. Insurance and Delivery Confirmation is available at an additional cost. SORRY, NO PAYPAL.

Not in great condition, but also not very expensive.

is this worth getting? It seems I am having a hard time finding a FSM. I found one on the site http://used.addall.com/ (per purvisgs), it shows as 1983 Datsun 810 Maxima Service Manual (Paperback), but there is no photo, no description and it does not state if it covers diesel engines.

I wouldn't give more than 5 or 10 bucks for the aftermarket manual. All 83 factory manuals will have the diesel info. Have you run a search on Ebay. They are on there pretty regularly.

You do not want a Chiltons, Haynes, Clymer. Get the real thing, then read Various errors in FSMs thread.

Bear in mind that I "always" have spare '82 & '83 Maxima FSMs available for sale, generally for $20 + shipping. eBay is usually cheaper; I am always faster.

I was kind of thinking the same thing about theChilton Manual. I have been checking ebay often lately and have found FSM for other Nissan Diesels, including 1981 and 82 810/Maximas, but not the 83. However, I found one on another site for $18, including shipping. That seems like a pretty fair deal to me considering there don't seem to be many of them out there.

The availability (on eBay) of Gen1 Maxima FSMs varies a great deal.

I have a lot of "canned searches" on eBay, some that run automatically and email me. In 1996, Nissan no longer suppled a FSM for my '82, so I bought an '83 FSM. I still have it. It cost me about $70, and that was with a "brother-in-law" discount applied.

For several years afterward, I ran a canned search for another manual, and maybe two showed up in five years.

In the past two years, probably twenty have been available via eBay!

But in the past six weeks, almost nothing again. However, that's only one source. If you're willing to pay $40, there is a ready supply. It's only the under-$20 market that is limited.

$18 shipped is a decent price, if the spine is still good. Several of the ones I've picked up as surplus have loose pages: There are not bound books, but overgrown paperbacks, and as they age they must be treated carefully if one wants to be able to continue to use it and not lose pages.

I bid/buy them on eBay when:

a) Nobody else is bidding (I will not bid against someone who needs one).

b) Price is under $10, and shipping is reasonable (sometimes shipping is $9, which I don't think is reasonable). If it's an exceptional condition book, sometimes I'll got a few dollars higher.

At any rate, you now have at least three choices of a 1983 FSM, so one can't really say they are "hard to find". Just maybe not at the price you'd like.

Really, you have to have one. It's not like you can make do without, not if you're going to do your own work, and most shops can't figure out how to make them work either.
