Default Thresher detail pictures?

I posted this on the model forum, but didn't get an answer, so I thought I'd try here. I've been asked to build a model threshing machine for Kim's Wilesco traction engine.

What I have in mind is something along the lines of a smallish 1880's Keystone or Westinghouse. Wood framed, apron hand feed, sliding grain boxes underneath instead of a bagger/weigher, with or without a recleaner, but probably with an add on type wind stacker because building a working web stacker sounds like a pain....

I've already figured out how to make a drum (large wooden spool, coffee stirrers and carpet tacks), though I'll probably skip making the concaves. What I DO need is some pictures from all sides of the general layout, showing framing, shaft locations and belt routing, close-ups of the shaker mechanism, straw racks and rack supports, where the screens are, etc. Can you guys help or point me in the right direction?

The one in the pic is about perfect. Basically what I need are:
1. Pics from all sides showing where everything goes.
2. Belt diagram
3. Close up of the straw rack shaker mechanism and how it's supported at the other end
4 Any internal details you can provide. I've bought a Case thresher manual off 'that site', but it hasn't arrived yet.
