electrical manuals/system maint.

who makes the best electrical manuals.
i have a 87 cherokee chief that has some serious electrical "issues"
i do low voltage work but i need a good set of diagrams and schematics.
the main issue is that the key lock cylender does not reliably put everything in the on position. ie. the radio wipers blinkers and a/c blower wont work. sometimes the windows work if you can get it in just the right spot.
reciently it will not let the engine contenue to run, just as if you turned the key off, here again it must be in exactly the right spot. and its getting harder to find the sweet spot.
i plant replace the the switch further down the column at the end of the linkage from the ignition key.
i am pretty sure that isnt the only problem, but its a place to start.
any suggestions are welcome.
thanks

Sounds like that whole rig might have some rotten wiring.. Maybe a call to Painless is the faster, better option.. ?? Just a though. Duno for sure. Not familiar with those rigs too much... Don't see many..

thanks for responding, i was able to fix 95% of my issues by replacing the ignition switch. this also seems to have allowed the parts store folks to get a decent reading with diag. scanner. my poor baby sees to be ok...for the moment, at least. but hey that is what project trucks are for, right.
thanks,
K.
