Speed controller questions (Mark VII)

I just picked up a Mark VII -- speed control does not work. Upon looking at some pictures of the speed control unit for a Mark V, it looks the same as mine, but the sleeve/sheave (?) that connects the arm to the pulley is gone. ( www.songofthegreatlakes.com/sslube.htm --see picture labled "The oil goes in the hole in the sleeve of the control sheave..." Looks just like mine, but sheave, clip, etc. missing)

It looks like a previous owner did some "work" on the controller - there are some unused holes, and some new holes. I'm wondering if someone tried to put in a V speed controller - would that be possible?

I have schematics from Shopsmith for the VII - and not much seems to match up for the speed controller with what's in mine.

Any ideas? I can email some pics if that would help.

Thanks,
Tony

a bit more info since my original post. Looks like I might be missing the control sheave assembly ($40 something from Shopsmith). I maybe am only missing the retaining loop and rollpin.

Hope this helps.

I have a mark VII and have rebuilt the speed control. If you send me pictures I will take a look at what you have.
