If you work on one of these, be aware that the dial string diagram on the Sam's Photofact is incorrect. Start with the tuning wheel all the way to the right (gang open), wrap around the tuning wheel the go onto the pointer wheel and pin, then the tuning knob shaft 2.5 times, then back around the shaft on the gang and to the spring. The spring is in a different position that is shown on the Photofact.

I don't have that Photofact. Does it have the same diagram as Dial Cord Stringing Guide DC-3?

Yes, and that is wrong. The opening in the wheel 9n the tuning gang needs to be 180 degrees from where it is shown on that sketch. The string goes out that opening, the to the left and around that wheel to the dial indicator wheel.
