Toyota engine rebuild

Hope someone can help me locate a manual for a 1988 Toyota Lite Ace van. Engine model is 5K-C.

I'm not even sure if this model was sold in the US, but here in Australia, even the local Toyota dealer can't help. "Too old" was the reply. I've searched everywhere I know, but no luck.

This is actually not for me, but a friend who has blown a head gasket and wants to try the repair himself.

If no luck on the manual, does anyone have experience in similar repairs and maybe can offer advice?

We don't get that model or the 5KC engine here in the States.

Check the links in my "Basics" for Toyota USA. E-mail them and ask how you can mail order the manual.

Make sure your friend has the head machined and verified by a machine shop before you resinstall it.
