John,
Many thanks for those links- I had some of the manuals but not all of them.
Having lokoed through the manuals they don't seem to be a huge amount of
help other than saying if lockup doesn't occur then rebuild the valve body,
or the gearbox or buy a new torque converter, none of which seem like an
ideal way forward. Can you give any further advice?
Somebody menitoned that a couple of people have gone with aftermarket shift
kits and the like that allow selective lockup in any gear- does anyone have
any further advice? Also someone mentioned a place in Exeter- I'm only in
Taunton and regularly pop down that way (keep seeing a battered blue 80 on
the m'way with steel wheels and a tyre carrier on the back- is it anyone
from here? I'm in a silver/gold joby with MTs, a snorkel and a CB arieal out
of the top!) so it might be a good idea for me to pop out to see them at
some point!
Cheers
Jim

Hi Clive,
There's no link to the FSM's through the mudtoys pages on purpose although
other sites have started hosting them so maybe it doesn't make any
difference now ...
Here's a recap for anyone who's missed previous posts (RM314E supplement
added since last post I think):
RM172E - 1PZ, 1HZ, 1HD-T ENGINE REPAIR MANUAL is available from
www.mudtoys.com/manuals/RM172E.pdf (31MB)
RM184E - REPAIR MANUAL FOR CHASSIS & BODY is available from
www.mudtoys.com/manuals/RM184E.pdf (121MB)
RM314E - A442F AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION REPAIR MANUAL (Aug 1992) is
available from www.mudtoys.com/manuals/RM314E.pdf (16MB)
RM314E SUPPLEMENT (Jan 1995) is available from
www.mudtoys.com/manuals/RM314E-1995-Supplement.pdf (3MB)
RM315E - REPAIR MANUAL SUPPLEMENT FOR CHASSIS & BODY (Aug 1992) minus
wiring diagrams is available from www.mudtoys.com/manuals/RM315E.pdf
(37MB)
Others waiting to be scanned:
RM315E - extensive wiring diagram section

RM534E - REPAIR MANUAL SUPPLEMENT FOR CHASSIS & BODY (May 1996)
EWD114F - ELECTRICAL WIRING DIAGRAM SUPPLEMENT (Dec 1990)
Would still like to get my hands on:
RM188E - 440/442 auto transmission repair
RM437E/RM523E - 1HD-FT engine manual/supplement
RM321E/RM436E - 1FZ-FE engine manual/supplement
EWD168F, EWD169F, EWD232F, EWD272F - Electrical manuals
If anyone ever needs vital information from those as yet un-scanned
manuals let me know and I'll sort something out.
Jon.
