Acme dash air conditioner

Need some help diagnosing the dash air on my (new to me) 2001 36mds. I've recharged the system and still the compressor will not turn on. I tried to override the system by applying 12volts to the compressor and everything seems to work fine, however when I disconnect my jumper, the compressor stops turning. If I had a schematic of the system, I might be able to find the problem. Any help will be appreciated.

Greg- I have the electrical schematics for your chassis. I tried getting them scanned for the ACA Tech Library, but the large sheets w/lotsa detail don't come out readable @ my local scan service & I can only scan up to 11x17. There are 4 sheets at about 18x24 inches covering the whole chassis, and they are sort of like 4 corners of a larger drawing. Takes a bit of study to follow a circuit but its a good starting point and clear enough to read if you get straight large-format copies.
FedEx/Kinkos quoted me $2.25/sheet plus tax for copies (75/sq.ft.), plus postage & mailer. If you'll PayPal me $15 & mailing instructions I can send you out a set:
