i desperately need to find a wiring diagram for a 1983 f150 please help if anyone can

I have and 83 f150 that has new alt battery volt regulator and selenoid and for some reason still won't charge correctly every day I start it the charging changes anywhere from none to 16.5 volts and I can't figure this out and I looked at a 79 wiring diagram but I think its a lot different if anyone has access to a 83 diagram for f150 or ideas on what the problem may be please help I'm desperate its been a problem for 2 months and I'm out of ideas

public library

I used to go to the public library and check out the reference section and make copies of diagrams I needed, enlarge the vacuum hose info. Most larger cities have a good automotive section.

Yea its an unprotected site so maybe your firewall settings sometimes prevent it. If you try it and it says unknown certificate just agree to go with it. Its a site we used in highschool so its not a porno_virus site or anything haha. But good luck

Tried to copy and paste it to a Word doc. but doesn't seem to work. Some diagrams will let me do that but not this one for some reason.
