First thing to remember with old equipment not commonly in use anymore, is to remove the original part for a visual inspection and measurement. Make a sketch with dimensions and take pictures. This helps avoid ordering incorrect parts from old obsolete and incomplete parts listings. In the original parts listings there were probably multiple pages of part numbers. Over the years the parts books frequently condense those listings to one or two lines. Information has been lost. Examine the old part and the mating parts to determine how and why they function, -and why they failed. This will help with installation and adjustments.
