1983 Mustang GT -- Where to get a shop manual?

Either I'm an idiot and I'm just not finding one, or they're really difficult to find. Can anyone tell me what's a good source for a Ford shop manual for my '83 5.0? Thanks...it would at least hopefully keep me from asking about unknown intake manifold holes.

Previous models owned:
1980 3.3L I6 notchback (my first car...sigh)
1996 3.8L V6 coupe
(NOTE: the '96 replaced a '95 coupe I had that was thoughtfully totaled...after I had owned it all of 6 days...by a lady who was thinking about Christmas shopping instead of driving)

I was fortunate to find a complete set of Ford service manuals on ebay for my '85 a few months ago. They have been most helpful in some of my projects.

Not all years are still available so keep looking, hopefully you'll find one.
