Default Micro switch information 1980 model CCar

I need to find a diagram of how to arrange the wires and the micro switches that are on the speed switch control arrangement under the dash of a 1980 CCar. The wires that connect to them have messed with and some disconnected along with the wiring to the 5 solenoid group. Do the switches turn on the selonoids as the drum turns? The way it looks each switch turns on when the lobe on the drum contacts the switch arm and stays on as it goes on through all speeds. Is this correct? Does feed back occur while the previous switches are still on as it goes to the next on in line? I am puzzled on this part. I understand how the solenoid speed control works, but just can't seem to grasp how the micro switch arrangement is supposed to work. there is nothing like getting one after some one else has taken it apart and messed it up. Don't have any idea if the switch arrangement is right as in the sequence of normally open vs normally closed in the stacked arrangement of the switches. Is a drawing/schematic available, or could some one help me solve this dilema? Thanks in advance for any help.

76 to 80 should be the same wiring diagram look at www.vintagegolfcartparts.com they should have a diagram

also go here Electric Club Car wiring diagrams
and scroll down to the last diagram for resistor solenoid wiring

Thanks to both of you for the links. I have a question. Please feel free to correct me if my theory is not correct here. I am totally conrused from looking at it so much. If what I am seeing from looking at this is correct, the first lobe on the micro switch cam activates a solenoid which in essence makes the current available as if it is a disconnect switch. The second spot on the cam riser then turns on the first speed resistor, then as the third cam turns on the second speed resistor, the first switch/solenoid combo is still on, then as the next switch turns on the other two still are on letting current flow through the previous parts of the resistor circuit. Is this correct? What about the lower speed switch/solenoid combinations that are still on when the final solenoid kicks in and is feeding current straight through to the motor? Does the current still flow through all the circuits at the same time or how is this handled? Looks like the switches need to open as the cam turns and current is sent up through the resistors till high speed is reached. Can anyone explain this mystery to me. Looking at the diagrams does not give any information as to how the switches are set up. Some of the switches have a normally open connection and also a normally closed terminal and the third post is the common side. Some have just a normally open connection and the common terminal. Will the fact that current will flow through all the closed switch/solenoids make a difference or how is this supposed to work? I am confused and need to get it back together. If anybody can explain how this is to be connected or tell me how to connect them other than just to have the switches turn on as the cam turns and does the current just not keep flowing through the slower speed resistor as you go up the line in the speeds? The last guy worked on it really messed it all up.

Here is a much better DIAG. which shows the relationship of the switches to the solenoids and resistor coils

Thanks again for the link. I think I have a grasp on it now. It looks like the more switches that are triggered on, the more current is added closer to the wire going to the motor? Going to try it anway. Gene
