Default 1985 DS Reverse out of control

I just picked up this 85 DS and had no reverse but forward worked perfectly. I found corrosion at the pos stud for reverse(A1) on the motor and cleaned it. Now I have reverse as soon as I put the f/r switch into reverse- without touching the pedal! Why would I have forward work perfectly off the pedal but reverse just seems to bypass the pedal and take off? I cant find anyone with a diagram marking the solenoid/switch controls. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

Look around the F-N-R switch assembly for a micro switch that is staying closed all the time.

Wiggle the fnr handle when it's doing this and it may stop. However you will still need a micro switch even if you can get it to quit if in fact that is what is causing the problem.

I found the solenoid and motor wiring diagrams(not the general wiring diagram) posted by pggroves in this forum. It seems my motor and f/r switch were all wired wrong. I followed the diagrams(too bad they dont print well) and all is good. Excellent site- thanks again to pggroves and Rusty too.
