Default Wheeler & Wilson D9 Tear Down

This is my 1st time working on a WW. Mostly have Singers in my collection. As you can see by the photos this machine is a mess. This is the worst conditioned machine Iíve ever had on my bench but I have faith I can turn this around. Iíve been contemplating the direction Iím going to go in. Iíve always done everything possible to keep everything original, taking care to preserve the paint & decals along the way.
This machine is totally crazed & you can see that, presumably the shellac is missing & noticeable on much of the area. As much as I canít believe IĎm going to say this, Iím thinking of stripping it in the sandblast tank, re-painting & re-decaling it.
Much of the machinery parts are completely rusted but believe it or not, it still moves. Itís too much rust to handle without doing a complete tear down. Of course, Iíd have to tear it down anyway to sandblast it.
Now here is where I need help. With all my other machines I have the adjuster manuals so a tear down is a breeze. I donít have one for the WW, Iíve searched the net but found nothing. Has anyone got any advice as to the final adjustments that Iíd be heading into once done?

my suggestion is to check with these folks for a manual. You are more likely to find experienced owners/refurbers of this age machine on that site.

Thank you bkay. I do have the operating manual, just need the adjusters. I'll check over there. Hope you have a blessed day.
