My brother is working on a 656 utility, that had the sleeve and rod  for the Draft & Position control levers corroded together.  He has disassembled the rockshaft housing enough to get the corroded rod & sleeve out and heated them and  lubricated  them.  He doesn't know how the linkage should be assembled and look when properly working. 

   Does any one have pictures or diagrams of the manual that would help to reassemble this unit?  Remember this is an International and not a Farmall, the International doesn't have the aluminum quadrant that the Farmall does.  I have a couple of Farmall's in N.C. but we're in Il. so we can't just go and look, and I left my 656 manuals with the tractors.  Thank you for your help.
