    Howdy, since I have full access to all Chilton Repair Manuals I thought I'd try starting a thread like this in hopes of helping fellow members and also creating searchable information for others.

    Ask away:

    NOTE: The 3rd Gen Tundra manuals are not published yet.
    NOTE 2: Feel free to ask about other vehicles in your garage as well.

    Okay, I have one. Do the Chilton manuals happen to mention what kind of Torsen center differential the 2nd Generation Sequoias use? T-1 (Type A), T-2 (Type B), or T-3 (Type C).

    Always looking for torques for everything. Think I got some for the front suspension last time. Does the chiton manuals have a list of torques or do you have to go through each section?

    That's a good question. No, the manuals don't contain part numbers or get to that detail. See attached.

    Rockauto or something similar will be a good resource to find that information.

    They have a standard bolt torque table on there (attached) but for each repair section there is usually an illustration showing the exploded view of the parts and applicable bolt torques. (see attachment from previous post)

    @Nor7 Off topic but can you send me the service manual for a 2006 Chevy Tahoe? Thanks in advance.

    @mdavis I wish I could send you the whole manual but I can only PDF one section at a time through various drop down menus. Is there a topic or repair that you need done?

    So are the '16 Crewmax manuals out yet? If so, I need the Radio interface schematics. Specifically looking for the video and audio interfaces.
