Adana 8-5 Mk I - ink disc ratchet

I have a Mark 1 Adana 8-5 that is lacking the ratchet assembly. Caslon would sell me a new one for £87… It can’t be that difficult to make one, two bits of flat metal bolted together and (the tricky bit) a counterbalanced chunk of metal. Is there a nice person out there with a Mk I press (this is the one with a separate set of springs for each roller - hidden in an aluminium casing, rather than one set of springs hidden in a red casing for the rollers) who would be so kind as to stick up a couple of pictures and (pretty please!) a measured drawing.

Thanks very much in advance.
