As for older manuals, keep an eye on Ebay, I managed to get bot the wiring and engine FSM for 84 there cheaply.
edit: Well, that's what I get for reading at work, Nipper beat me to it

Bentley manual is a rewrite of the shop manual; sadly it only covers up to '84. But it's the best, even better than the shop manuals for those years.
Factory service manuals are certainly the most useful for the "hardcore" among us, but they are pricey.
All of these can be found on ebay now and then. Also try Amazon, you might get lucky.
You'll pay more, but they'll likely have it in stock at www.books4cars.com ; they do mail order if you're not near Seattle.

The problem may be with the connection to the ignition switch so check the connector under the steering column and check for signs of burn damage there. Also check the fusible links for a bad connection in the plastic box mounted on the coolant reservoir.

eBay just had a very good condition FSM book-set for the 88 for $90 delivered; it might get reposted soon (if not already). I just received my set for my 88 XT from the same vendor and they look nearly new.
I also have a CD for my SVX, and although it is nicely organized, it has many mistakes where some pages were not included and others were repeated... sometimes 5 times.
Regarding Book vs. CD, I like having paper in front of me rather than a screen, but you can still print the parts you want from the CD. I like having a copy of the pages that I can get greasy, so prints from the CD are more convenient thatn trying to scan and print from the manual.
