I am unable to locate a parts schematic of the 470 launching pad to assist in getting it to operate as designed. I am specifically interested in a schematic of the actual launch mechanism. If you know of one, please provide a link or provide a copy.

Thanks very much, swede

The only thing I dug up on it.

Must work off a spring inside?
Edit, Yep, I just read the link. Works off a spring inside.
What is yours not doing?

The mechanism looks to be identical to the mechanism on the postwar missile launching cars.
Here is an ''exploded'' view of the mechanism.

Thank you, Larry. Exactly what I needed. The launcher would operate by pulling the trigger down manually. The wire link and roller are missing. Now time to hunt for parts.

Thanks again, swede

The diaphragm is ok. I found a source for the roller and link.

Thanks, all.
