What is a Factory Service Manual?
If you plan to do your own work on your Datsun, whether it be routine maintenance or more in-depth projects, you’ll want to have access to a Factory Service Manual (FSM). These manuals are significantly better, and more accurate, than a Haynes or Chiltons manual, since the information is developed by the manufacturer to be used by Nissan-trained technicians.
Inside each FSM, you’ll find repair information that the dealer-trained service technicians used everyday. While the FSM is intended for professionally-trained technicians with high levels of automotive experience and skill, don’t let that scare you – these cars and trucks are simple, and the manuals reflect that. Even if you’re not an advanced do-it-yourself owner, we’re here to help.
Another benefit of having an FSM on hand is that occasionally, reference will be made to special tools and other information uniquely known by the dealership service centers.
Should I buy a FSM?
Don’t be fooled into buying a digital copy on CD from auction sites like eBay. We provide our members access to the same factory-published FSM for free.
When you’re ready to begin your project, find the appropriate section of the FSM, and print the relevant pages you will need. This way, you’ll have it at your fingertips in the garage for easy and quick reference.
Cool! How can I thank you enough?
While you’re completing your project, take pictures as you go, and write up the process. Send it over to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll convert it to an article so that everyone can benefit from it. You’ll be contributing to the community, helping out your fellow enthusiasts, and we might even send you some free goodies for your efforts!
Mistakes: Occasionally, you may run across a mistake or misprint in the FSM. While this is rare, we certainly like to know about it. Keep in mind, most of the early Datsun manuals were translated, often poorly, and are sometimes more comedic than helpful! Feel free to email us at email@example.com if you find something you think might be inaccurate.
You don’t have the manual I want! Well, you get what you pay for. In all seriousness, maintaining the current Nissan and Infiniti manuals is a challenge in itself. If you have a paper copy or a scanned manual that you’d like to share with other enthusiasts, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’s my manual, I scanned it! …and Nissan published it. We’ve got a broader reach than you, so we’re putting these out here for people to access and use. If you feel the need to hoard something that’s been in the public domain for 40+ years, email us at email@example.com and tell us how rotten we are. We might respond, or we might not. Most likely, we’ll just make fun of you for being weird.
