good mechanics manual to get is the haynes series. I got one off of amazon for 2000-2005 Nissan xterra/frontier/panthfinder. You get internal to external layouts and explanations. Wiring diagrams, bolts and latches. Good book to keep under your seat for when you need itGood idea. I'm good at losing things, so I've misplaced my manual...but I'll find it sooner or later. Meanwhile, I'm about 90% sure I'll be purchasing a replacement distributor and rebuilding this old one over time, save it for a rainy day. Can't thank you folks enough!
can find some used for less than $10, but can save you $100 for DIY repairs instead of having a mechanic diagnose you
