Got this Schwinn rear expander drum brake freewheel unit from a friend and am wondering what it is that I'm missing to put it back into service? Seems nobody over the years has posted or shown an exploded diagram of the parts for one of these units. I think I'm close, just don't know what to look for . Anyone have pictures of one torn apart that shows the parts? I have included a picture of parts o the unit I have currently. So what's missing? Thank you, Mike.

I'm the Wiz, and nobody beats me!
It looks like you’re missing the two little coil springs and the pawls.
There’s also several thin spacers 3884.
It typically takes three of those for the right amount of free play.you’re also missing 3863 and the many ball bearings that make up the freewheel.your best bet, will be to buy another one of these hubs to get the parts to build up one good hub.
Individual parts are next to non existent.

If you get to the point, where your ready to give up, and you’d like to sell the parts you have there, let me know.
I’ll buy them from you.

Thank you for the catalog picture! This gives me a direction, I went back to a 1953 Parts and accessories catalog and was able to make a sensible order to how these go together and what I was missing. I have never owned or worked with one before. Here are the pictures of the parts layout I found ...
