Engine torque Specs would be nice. Crankshaft Pulley, cam gears, valve covers, spark plugs, etc....

I've been working on it. I got my hands on a Japanese OCR and I've been doing it in my spare time. It's going slow (lots of OCR errors to correct, formatting to change, etc). I'm about 10% or so done now. I hope to start putting pages up on 1JZ.com in the coming weeks. Is there any particular section anyone would like translated first?

Torque specs are already there, read the accompanying doc for how to decipher them.

I should have the first bit of it online in 2 weeks or so. I'm about to move to Texas, so spare time for this stuff is non-existent for a while.

However, take a look at what I scored on YJ yesterday:
http://page18.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/w12669194

(It's the Japanese TSRM for A70 and A80 Supras)

Now I just need to wait 6 weeks or so to get it.

how do you bid on the yahoo auctions? most will (as in yours) ship internationally!
You mean (won't) ship internationally?

I use Rinkya (www.rinkya.com). They are a bit spendy ($35 fee per auction), but are pretty much your only choice.

any updates on a translated manual?

I tried sending the jdm manual to my old boss, where I worked at a place that did OCR'ing and translating, but he doesn't have the capability for japanese to english...

I've got the OCR part down, the biggest issue is having the time to do it and tackling the differences between Japanese and English grammar.

I'm in the middle of moving right now, so my desktop computer is in storage. Hopefully I'll be back at it in the next week or so.

Sorry guys, I decided to buy a house, so I'm in a hotel for a couple weeks until I close. That means the computer is in storage :(

I intend to make it freely available, so put your $$$ away.

Some good news:

My CD from Japan came today. I now have service manuals including wiring diagrams for all JDM Supras MKIII and MKIV. They're in Japanese.

Also, I'm finally closing on the house on Friday.

Don't give up yet, I'm still here. ;)

If all goes well here, look for the first parts of it by the weekend...

OK, I got the first few bits up. Here's the URL:

http://www.1jz.com/tech/docs/engine_manual/

The viewer is very primitive, I hammered it out tonight, so it's ugly as hell and expect a few bugs.

You are the man!! That is really awesome. I hope that some of us can find a way to return the favor!! All I can offer is a good deal on a rear sump pan setup, or pre '89 mkIII 1JZ motor mount brackets lol...But I def wouldn't mind paypal'ing you a 'donation' otherwise!!

I'm looking forward to printing the entire thing out and reading through it!! There are a lot of simple q's that will be answered...

Thanks again

Thanks everyone, I'm glad the work that I put in to it is appreciated.

I don't know what happened to page 14. I noticed it was missing but haven't investigated. My desktop computer is set up on the floor until I get my desk (Dec 13th) so I haven't been using it much. Then I'm on Christmas hiatus Dec 15th-Jan 5th so sorry guys but I don't expect much progress until January. I'll try to get page 14 up and the UI improved a bit before I leave.

For those of you that wish to donate, I wouldn't feel right accepting donations when there are far more deserving and important causes out there. I have a good job, a roof over my head, and a Supra. There are many, many others that aren't as fortunate. If you want to show your appreciation just post or PM me here or on the www.1jz.com forum and say thanks, and save the donations for those in need.

so is there not a manual for the 1jz that shows more advanced things like torque specs on the head and valve train. Or stuff like top dead center. Maybe even ignition stuff. Im thinking about doing this swap into my 240 but if there isnt much info out there I might have to lean toward the rb25 instead.

Wow, that is great!!! Thanks so much for working on that.

I'm actually looking for the part number on the stock intake valve and you are just a couple of pages short. Keep up the great work!

The service manual doesn't have any part numbers. I do have a 1JZ EPC on my site though. Here's the link to the section with the valves (you'll need to register for the forum first):
http://www.1jz.com/tech/epc/illustration.php?illustration_id=157

The part number is 13711-88400.

I made some changes today. Fixed some bugs in the browser, made some style changes, and translated and added the missing page 14. More to come...
