975 Ruston Bucyrus Excavator

I have just acquired a very nice example of this excavator, but some of the (original) cords are in a tangle. Does anyone know the correct way to thread the cord for the dipper arm, or, even better, have a scan of the operating instructions that came with the toy?

I will post a photo when the re-stringing is done,

 Thanks,

 Kevin.

Re : 975 Ruston Bucyrus Excavator

Here is the model in question, repro box and tracks, but all else, including the cord, is original and in near-mint condition. Unfortunately, the re-stringing issue is not yet resolved!
