The scaner below I recommend highly for a OBD1 and I will tell you why and its made by Actron/Sunpro.
Working at the dealer we had OTC scanners it was ok but wasn't impressed and not user friendly and exspencive.
I did like the Snap on scanner but exspenive but I wanted one so I asked rep for Snap On that came to our dealer to order one for me, his response was save your money and wait for the Actron scanners to hit the stores soon. I thought this guy was high on drugs when he said that. So I asked him whats so special about this scanner, he told me that one of the engineers that took part of developing the OTC scanner left the company and works for Actron/Sunpro and developed a OBD1 scanner and its just as good or better than a OTC and Snap On scanner.
So I waited till it hit the stores and purchased one and it came with two GM cartridges, OBD1 and 94-95 OBD2 , Ford OBD1 cartridge and all the cables. At that time I paid $400 for it. I was very impressed and user friendly worth the money and live data.
Model number, Actron cp 9110
You can try Ebay and make sure that it works.

He put GP9110, but the manual says CP9110.

And does it show live data? And and stuff like coolant sensor temp and TPS voltage?

I have this model and it works well for OBD1 stuff. AutoXray has various models (revisions) and the older ones have smaller screens so you can't view as many data lines at once. Make sure it comes with at least the GM, Ford, and Chrysler cables. Some came with OBD2 cables as well. Don't worry too much about the latest update since you're dealing with 25+ year old technology.

For TPS, I'd recommend a multimeter with a basic graph function - bar/line at the bottom or top of the screen. Similar to what's shown on the screen of this one.

It will allow you to see momentary glitches on potentiometers that you might otherwise miss while just watching numbers on a screen.

I'll be sure and try to nab it then.
As well as testing things with a meter.

I guess it's down to this one. Read up on it... It seems like what I need.

Lots of used ones available. Just make sure you get a newer model and all the cables.
