Vandercook 4 gripper pedal mechanism

Hello,

I have been working a bit with the Vandercook 4 in a shared shop in Sweden. During some investigation as to why the ink drum wasn’t rolling when the power was turned on, several screws were removed from under the plate, resulting in the disconnecting of the gripper pedal. I have looked at length for a diagram of the mechanism of this chain – bar – spring setup, and haven’t found anything that could help me reconnect the pieces in this very difficult-to-access spot. Our next move is to search for a specialist in this part of the country, but barring that, do you have any recommendations for me to help with this problem?

Thanks for your time.

    I hope that this photo will help you understand this overly complicated mechanism. Unfortunately it will take an engine hoist to see it irl …
