I don't know where you would get paper at this point. PDFs are available. I typically choose only the pages for a specific job and print them.

PM if you can't find anything.

sorry - just my rambling.

LIBRARY - resource desk, you want online auto repair, and order (card catalog) any books not on shelf, haynes, motor etc.

Here are two places for Jeep manuals. They are PDF but free and accurate.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.

I got a TSM for my CJ from these guys, but not sure this is the equivalent?

https://www.themotorbookstore.com/19...op-manual.html

I too like paper on hand. The factory service type manuals ARE written for mechanics though. There's lots of good tidbits in my TSM, but it's also written with the assumption that the person referencing it knows what they're doing. Just something to be aware of. The usual "Use special tool #....." stuff too.
