cj-7 owner's manual / oil pressure question

Here are several questions if anyone does not mind sharing your knowledge:

Where can I get an owner's manual for a cj-7? does anyone have one scanned you would email me, or where do I get one for a '79?

Second, what is the normal oil pressure limits as my ranges from about 20 psi to 33 psi.

I just had the diffferential service, and transfer case/transmission service, on this jeep which had sat about a year in a garage before I bought it a month ago. This would not affect oil pressure readings would it, as it seems lower now but I do not see how that would affect the pressure readings.

My temp gauge does not work. I may need to get that working too!

Thanks.

The extraordinary service falloutboy89 has done by posting these materials cannot be underestimated. Thank you.

One question remaining: on the inside front cover of the manual posted, it indicates in the index there are materials about maintenance (perhaps it is the schedule), but the inside front cover may not be posted as i do not see a schedule.

Is there a maintenance scedule of recommended services per mileage on that inside front cover, or if not, would someone post one if you have it for the cj-7?

Thanks again.

Robert

My bulk copier company made an extra copy of the 1979 Jeep muti-page color catalog showing all jeeps for the 1979 year. If anyone wants a copy, I will sell this extra one I paid for for my cost. Every page but one is brilliant color pictures as in a brochure. Here is the earlier poster's link of it: The only difference in what I have is my printer made them each color.

Email if you want me to compute the cost for it in color.

Do not ever trust the Jeep OEM oil pressure gauge to be correct.
It's best to use a mech. gauge that shows the true PSI.
Mine is a Stewart-Warner. Yup, been in for awhile.

AS Lumpy states. the factory OP gauges gave us fits for years, replacing senders, then dash units, then matched dash units/senders, blah blah....
Last thing a tech wanted to see was Jeep under warranty that needed a dash oil guage, with the radio and a/c in the way.
