YJ Factory service manual on CD

I searched all around here (and around the internet), but i can't find out anywhere if there is available on CD and/or PDF the FSM for an '88 YJ. Has anyone ever heard of one around anywhere? I already have the (huge) paper bound one, but i am looking for an electronic version.
thanks.
Thanks

i have been half-assed looking for the one for a 93 but they are not easily found, unlike the grand cherokee and cherokee ones.

Well my 95 Cherokee CD also has the YJ on it, so you may want to double check if you do find an XJ one.... Just saying.

Amazingly I still have all the original paperwork and owners manual on my '93. I might be able to scan it in at work.

Joe, as much as I've looked, none for the early YJ's have been found. I'll take this opportunity to ask if you will scan and post the "Distributor Curves" charts, both the "Mechanical Advance" as well as the "Vacuum Mechanism".

Although they may be identical to the '83-'86 4.2, it sure would be good to have reference if there is a change in the timing curve.

Here is a link to the '93YJ manual, as well as many other jeep build years. Unfortunately it is the only one for the YJ available on this site. Jeep Service Manuals

I got a CD version of the shop manual from Bishko. www.autobookbishko.com. Looks like they carry the 88YJ manual too... Second from the bottom on this page.

Hey Joe.
After our chat I set out on another net prowl in hope of finding the manual. In recognizing your user name I found a couple if not three of you search attempts as well, none was found otherwise I would have posted them.

After giving a look at the charts I see that they are identical to the '83-'86 CJ's.
After an even closer look I see that the script is prob 95% the same as well, same facts and figures though.
In having read that some "thought" that the early YJ's used a different advance head I wanted to be sure of what I may say in regard to YJ timing.

Thanks
