Where can I get a service manual and diagrams to identify the correct caps to replace?

The problem could also be the small relay that switches the head leads for 2 channel/4channel/forward/reverse. Exercise the unit in forward and reverse a few time to see if the level changes on the bad channel. I have also found bad playback heads on these type of units. A channel could be open.

Clean your record-playback switch(es) and heads first; your caps may be OK. Some oxidation on heads is really stuck on there after all these years; it takes a while to get it all off.

I just left the 630d on for two days, both channels play even now, seems to me that a component is bad

You may have bad capacitors. It could be worthwhile to just replace all the electrolytics in the playback amplifier.
