    eBay.

    I wouldn't get a CD. Most factory manuals weren't originally made on CDs, so any you're likely to find are aftermarket crap.

    I believe that Ira has the whole set. A trip to kinkos and a little $ would get you a set.

    That's where I got mine. I only found one for the 1990 r/v series, but seeing as mines an 89, I figured it's close enough. I'll just remember that the 90 K5's had some minor differences.

    The 5.7-liter V-8 (L05) engine was improved for 1990 with the addition of improved oil control rings, a redesigned rear crankshaft seal, a new camshaft sprocket design, non-asbestos intake manifold gaskets, and heavy-duty intake valves. They also have anit-lock brakes.

    I don't need to know anything. I already have my manuals.
