Default Murphy A50 broken dial drum cord, help please!

Last night I decided to power up my big old Murphy A50 and give it a listen to.
Unfortunately the tuning drum stopped rotating, it still tunes in and sounds great.
So I took the chassis out and as I thought the cord has broken, now this isn't a particularly complicated arrangement but there are still countless ways of threading a new cord around the pulleys and wheels.
I'm struggling to work it out!
A diagram from the service sheet would really be helpful, any pointers to where I might locate this from, I've not had any luck this end finding one.
Thanks.

Hi Clive

It's up top surely https://www.service-data.com/search....&search=Search

The manufacturers doesn't show a stringing diagram just a description of how to do it.

Cheers

Thank you David, that really is very helpful, much more straight forward than I thought it would be. Without the diagram I was looking at it in totally the wrong way.
