A local u pick style junk yard will usally let you walk around and look under the hoods of car and trucks. may help if you got something you cant figure out. Luckily most of the wiring will only plug into the correct connector. Usally different things are a different shape connector.

I have always used different color eletrical tape to match the connectors back up. no help now but maybe next time you can use some tape on each side of the connectors and then just match up the color to slap is back together.

Vacum line routing might be a bigger issue with the 83 305. Not sure about the best place to get the manual but I alwasy try to score the OEM shop manual for any car i own. Its always a major help and has all the proceedures and scematics no matter what might come up. For some reason i seem to break stuff no one else has ever seen break before. LOL

I do run across the manuals in pdf on the net but nto sure if these are legit or not.
