Default Wiper/Washer System

Does anyone have a schimatic of the wiper and washer system for a 58 t bird? I'm sure the main vacuum line goes to the wiper motor, but then it gets blurry. How is the washer switch connected to the motor, etc. Sometime in my car's history, all sorts of strange connections were made. Thanks,

Here's a picture from the shop manual. What it doesn't show is the T connector that splits the vacuum. One port goes to the wiper motor and the other to the washer switch. The T connector is under the dash near the wiper motor.

I thought I posted a schematic to this web site. If not let me know and I can post one for the archives.

It's from a 58 NOS washer kit.

Thanks for all the help. I did see information in the tech section, but it didn't make me comfortable that I had all the information. I did not see a schematic out there, Fuz. Maybe I just missed it. Again thanks for all the help.
