Cam style Scruggs Tunners

Cam Scruggs tunners
Has anyone got a RB 100 or RB 250 bowtie style key head with original Scruggs Cam runners.
I would like some close up pictures to see the part that limits the turn of the tuner. There is a pin that comes out of the shaft that sits in. this piece which allows you to turn the tuner only so far.
If somebody has two of these I would love to know. I also am looking for the piece that actually moves the string. If I can get good pictures I will try to makes them. Does any one know if there is a templet that shows exactly where to install install them? I think there is. I do have a pair of the metal cross pieces that allow you to install them on fiddle shaped key head.

Look at my profile for free photos of Kluson (Gibson factory) cam tuners (don't go by the VEGAs I also show). What is NOT shown is the pair of little pins you have to sink into the peghead to "catch" the little pin that sticks out of the tuner shaft. One for high note and one for low note. Diagrams are in Earl Scruggs instruction book. The "cam" itself is just a piece of stamped brass, you could make them with a pair of pliers and a file I'm sure.
