Every time I get a new project car or truck, I buy all the literature that pertains to them, particularly the factory service manual. My provider of choice for the last few decades has been Faxon Auto Literature. Here is the link, showing factory service manual originals for $44, $54 and $64, depending on condition and there is a reprint for $30. Everything you need to know about your truck is there, so spring for it.

I agree ,everytime my Dad would buy a piece of heavy equipment I would make him buy the service manual and I was able to repair it for him. In this case I am fixing a 57 truck center section to go into a 32 Olds for somebody else. It doesn,t pay me to buy the manual for a 1 time deal. Thanks.
