wiring diagram

Hello, was doing a internet search for info, and google showed this thread, so i registered to see if I can get some help.

I recently purchased a 89 western star 4964f. I need wiring diagrams in bad way. Jake Brake doesn't work and have no power to the dash switch for it. but have power on both sides of the fuse for it.
I need to rework most of the switches as the previous owner really worked it over, some work, some don't, some control things they aren't labeled for etc...

Any still have diagrams or pics of the original dash in these rigs?
