Default Workshop manual for '98 KJ Laser?

G'day all,

Just bought a '98 Laser for my daughter's first car. With only 130K kilometers on the clock it's in great nick... driven by two little old ladies to bowls and back for the last decade or so.

I've been scudding around online for a workshop manual (muggins here is official service tekky for our fleet of miscellaneous vehicles), but can't seem to find any Laser manuals by either Gregory's or Haynes that go past 1996.

Will a 1996 KJ manual do the job? I want something which covers not only the Mazda donk, but also the bodywork, tranny... the lot, basically.

Or is there somewhere online where I can download (for free or a bit of dosh) a PDF of a workshop manual?

Any recommendations, folks?

Cheers,
Mike.

Thanks mate... but the only 1998 laser manuals on that eBay search are 'engine only'. I'm after a manual for the whole car. Just doesn't seem to be anything out there for the KJ.

Might trot off to Ford and see what they say...

Cheers,
Mike.

I just did the water pump on our KJ 1.8 twin cam

Pump is good, but I suspect when I did the timing belt I got it wrong, as it runs like a hairy goat now

I had to guess the timing marks as had no workshop manual

Devo'd that I have to pull it down again

Can you guys tell me what the orientation of the two cam sprockets should be?

I've got the crankshaft one sorted, as it's easy to see the top dead centre mark

Thanks so much

Going by the manual there is an E on left hand side and a I on right hand side pulley to align.E approx 4 o'clock . I approx 8 o'clock. Hope this helps.

Mate, I could kiss you.

Someone was kind enough to send me a KH manual but it was different - cams both needed to sit at 12 o'clock.

Saved the day you did, as this was my second attempt at setting it and I've found so much contradictory info

Thank you!!!!
