Did you know that there are two types of propeller shafts, and before servicing, the type of shaft must be determined because the service procedures differ? Well, you would if you owned this manual and flipped to section 4A and examined the general description information. You’d be advised that the Cleveland design can be recognized by snap rings outboard of the universal joint. You’d also discover that the Saginaw shaft is recognized by the absence of snap rings at the universal joints. These production shafts have trunnions which are retained by a nylon material which is injected into a groove in the yoke. This helpful book provides access to all of that, plus illustrations of each type, as well as diagnosis and unit repair instructions. That’s just a small example of the level of detail you’ll find throughout this handy guide.
In 1981, Chevrolet offered an excellent array of car models for just about every taste and need. The Camaro was in its last year of a wildly popular body style which had been around since 1970 (1970 ½ for you technical folks…you know who you are). Beyond that, you still had a great selection of vehicles with various blends of luxury, sport and utility. When it’s time to get to work on the service and maintenance tasks to get (and keep) yours running, be sure to use the authority's guide to make sure you are loaded with the factory specifications and instructions to keep your beloved classic at its best.
Want a little perspective on how much life has changed since the beginning of the glorious ‘80s? In 1981, the world witnessed the first U.S. space shuttle flight, when the Columbia went out to explore “the final frontier”. International Business Machines (IBM) also launched something… its FIRST PC! The term “internet” was first used. How about one more launch…Music Television (MTV). I want my (original) MTV! You may not need to get your car ready for The Cannonball Run, which hit theaters in ’81, but you’ll still want it in first-class condition. This 1981 Chevrolet car shop manual is the best tool to get that dream done.
This is not some shabby hand-me-down book. It’s a clean and freshly printed reproduction shop manual which retains all of the material from the original source. It’s the best of both worlds.
