Default Wagon Lift and Speed Jack Restoration help needed!

Hi Everyone,
This past weekend I pulled out my old wagon jack and a speed jack out of the woods that I bought at an auction sale about 15 years ago. I believe that the main frame is complete so I'm fortunate in having the wood patterns go by for the main frame, the piece that actually supports the wagon is questionable as it has mostly rotted away. The speed jack is fairly complete also except for one bearing support and the main drive pulley are missing. If I remember right at the auction where I bought it they said it was to be a John Deere, but I don't see any JD logo's on any parts just part numbers and it was 15 years ago. Other than the one I have I've never looked at one before, so.... I'm hoping that there are some people out there that can guide me in the restoration of this wagon lift. Pictures would be great! Some helpfull hints in the operation of the lift and the speed jack would be great also.
My buddy has a John Deere paddle elevator with a 3hp engine, we would like to get this display up an running for our local show this fall that will be featuring John Deere.
Thanks..
Brian

The speed jack is John Deere. There is a clutch engagement handle that is missing.

I have some of these that are not complete but I might have the parts you need. I'll look when I get a chance,Still harvesting a couple of days.

I scanned the speed jack and wagon lift photos from the 1932 catalog.

Here's a pic of my speed jack I cleaned up this winter. I had some left over cedar from my deck project to replace the rotten wood.

I need more help with the Jack. We do not know how the chain runs to release the break on the lift. I have attached pitchers. There is a pulley with the chain ruining through but it seems to be on a shaft with the just an oiler on top. What keeps the pully in place are we missing a bracket? Is this set up wrong
