91 Wrangler Ignition Diagram

How is everyone, I am looking for a diagram or some general information on my 91 Wrangler. I haven't gotten my FSM yet, I am ordering it when I get paid next week, I want to tackle an ignition problem though. I was hoping someone could help me out.

When the PO replaced the ignition in the column, they bent/broke a metal rod. The PO says it is part of the mechanical ignition and it turns with the key to allow power to the start. I was hoping someone has a diagram or picture of theirs that I can look at to compare mine too and fix. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your help and information everyone.

I dont' have that diagram, but I know what he's talking about. When you turn the key, the ignition cylinder pushes a metal rod, which activates the ignition switch further down the column. It's not like modern cylinders where the switch is on the back of the cylinder. Ours are bolted to the top of the column.

You can google mid-80's Chevy columns... they're almost identical. Will probably give you more picture options until you get the FSM. If you don't mind me asking, how much was the FSM? I need a copy for the wiring diagrams. I have Snapon's "Mitchell" program but the diagrams are poorly scanned junk until '97...

I went to the dealership and they charged me 145 for it. It should be here by Friday I hope.

I am so rude. I forgot to say thank you for the help. I am looking up the column now. As soon as I get it in I will snap some pictures of whatever pages you need.
