Wiring diagram for 1980 merc capri

I am presently installing a new carpet in my 1980 merc capri. The previous owner changed the tranny for a four speed to an automatic, he disconnected the back up lights. I want to reconnect them while I have the carpet out. I cannot figure out the mess he left under the carpet. Is there anywhere I can get a wiring diagram for this car.

Won't back up!

well slipping in reverse would be tranny...;but by saying the engine spits,,,sputters ,,,stalls,,,,sounds like engine not enough power to drive it in reverse...i'm guessing forward no problems...first thing comes to mind is in reverse engine moves on motor mounts as you give it gas..could be wiring harness rubbing on block causing short condition..when in forward engine moves opisite direction...while idling in park, shake wiring harness all over different spots see if you can simulate the condition.....are there any engine codes....also does it have a problem in reverse on a flat surface... or only on a incline....if only on an incline check fuel pressure while in reverse on incline.. see if loosing pressure for some reason..on incline fuel goes to lowest part of tank...

Unless you have some decent knowledge of electrical systems, I'd recommend that you leave the present wiring in place, clean it up and perhaps re-tape any "raggy" areas. Not saying it can't be done but remember that one mistake in a critical area will be far from painless.
