Hi Jason:
The PDF versions of the FSM's are actually better in some ways than the paper copies. I have some years available in that format where I boosted the resolution to 600 dpi. The reason being you can blow up individual pages to the sky which helps on things like wiring diagrams or other pictures that weren't presented as well in the paper versions. In other words, you can blow up a page, or a piece from a page to six times its normal size and not lose detail.

Some folks take their laptop to the garage and use the manual that way. If you have a page or a piece of a page you want to blow up and print, this is even easier if you have a wireless printer.

In any case, I can provide you with the 90/94/95 versions and except for a few small details they are mostly the same anyway. There were some changes between 90-97 but not that many. If you had the 90 and 94 versions, this will cover 98% of anything you will have to work on, and you can easily wing the other 2% or just ask a question here at IN.

My email is adventurebooksofseattle AT gmail. My name is Robert. Don't forget to remind me you have a 93 truck. The FSM is the only way to go. 1,200 pages or so in them can't be wrong.

My 93 was a "E" trim so not more basic than that, it also had the rear light. Was a king cab so that may be why it had the map lights.


PDF version is also good because you can enlarge a page as was said than print it out, you should see how much grease is on the pages of my paper 87 manual !

I have about a third of that number you listed. But I have a lot on the early Datsun stuff, too. My favorite thing I ever did on a Nissan was probably restoring the 1982 ZX in 2018. The wife and I did it alone over six weekends and our spare time. Strictly for resale purposes, we got the car by doing four professional cleans on a two-story 6,000 foot square house. They had a baby grand piano in the living room. We were the second owners. The original owner had bought it new in college.

After six weeks of crazy-hard work, we made a bundle and the ZX got a new life down in Portland, Oregon. We live near Seattle. He arrived with cash in an envelope, a flatbed tow rig, and a friend. He ended up driving it back to Portland, and it hadn't been on the road in 13 years. It made it there no problem.



The SECOND most favorite thing I ever did on a Nissan was when my friend Ronnie and I switched out a POS L-16 engine for an L-20B with a Weber carb on a 73 620 truck. From the time we started putting our wrenches to this thing, until the time we fired it up with the new engine...was 90 minutes. The good old days when dinosaurs roamed, and Datsuns were easy to flip for money. Ronnie was the best tranny guy I ever knew. I watched him stand a Dodge Torqueflight on its tail and rebuild it completely from a kit, while he stood there talking to me.

Ok I’m a total noob so I may be missing something. I found the NICO site, but I didn’t see a D21 forum category. I did see 300Z, 240SX, Altima, etc..

Where on the site should I be looking?

Never mind after some more searching I found the service manual section.

It threw me when I didnít see a D21 forum listed with other models but I see they have a separate page for trucks.

I guess I need to join that forum too.

For the D21 this place is much better than NICO. NICO is better for much of the car stuff. NPORA for Pathfinder stuff.

Yes, but Nico has all the service manuals, that's why I linked to it.
