    If you need it immediately, probably Ebay. Otherwise check swap meets.

    If you want brand new and don't mind paying full price, go to www.helminc.com

    Ebay has an '85 K5 factory shop manual for $69 "buy it now". I snagged one there for my '85 K5 yesterday for $74.

    Helm doesn't seem to carry it at this minute (but I could be wrong). I'd have got one there for mine, but no stock.

    books4cars.com lists an '86 K5 manual for $65.

    Yep, if I hadn't been impatient and wanted one R.F. now, I'd have cooled my heels for a cheaper deal. There's no sub for a real GM shop manual.
