dual tanks on an 85...please help

I recently purchased an 85 K2500. It's setup for dual tanks but only has the driver side tank. The switch is in the cab still but the switching valve, passenger tank, hangers and brackets, and all the lines are missing. I need pictures and details to help me gather the right parts, and also a how to on how to hook everything back up. I know where to buy most of the parts but I can't seem to find the big steel brackets that bolt to the frame. Obviously the hangers are easily found as is the tank and sending unit as well as the valve.
I need to know how the lines are run, how the return line run, and how the crossover line is run.

Thanks guys!
