Shimano shifter schematics?
I'm attempting to repair a mid-1980s shimano STX shifter. So far, I've got the thing apart, cleaned the muck out of it and I'm trying to put it back together. The problem is, if I put it back together the way it was, the pawl for the thumb lever doesn't engage with the central toothed wheel (not a technical term there, I know). There's a huge database of Sturmey-Archer schematics on the web, does anyone know of a similar thing for Shimano?
The shifters are combined with a brake lever, which is a short-pull cantilever brake lever. It's a 7-speed, which operates an Altus rear mech on a freehub rear wheel. Any ideas where I might get a schematic for them? Shimano doesn't seem to have info on older parts available...
