Question wiring schematic - '80s Caprice Engine compartment

Does anyone have a wiring schematic for an 80s Caprice, specifically for engine compartment - I am looking for the wiring for the wiper motor.
Here's the story should you care....I have a 69 GTO (not stock - most of the mechanicals are from a wrecked '88 Trans Am GTA) and I am struggling with trying to get a working wiper motor using the column I have ( from the Trans Am). I can get the trans am motor to work and was able to fabricate a mounting plate but the motor's rotation isn't really comparable with the old A-body wiper arm set-up. The only motor that is the same style as the original but is also compatible with the wiper switch used in the Trans Am's Column is from an '80s Caprice's. I pulled a motor form a donor at a local yard and i can't get the wiring figured out at all. I know the switch's wiring but can't figure out the motors. any help would be greatly appreciated.
-Dave

Pick up a Haynes manual. They have pretty extensive wiring schematics in them. Chiltons manuals also have the diagrams but I've found the Haynes to be more comprehensive...
