Suntour Superbe Assembly Order?

I recently acquired an old Schwinn Super Sport. I took all the components off the bike, cleaned all the rust and dirt off, greased them, and put them back on. However, I can not figure out the order to reassemble the parts of the Suntour Superbe friction shifters. Each shifter consists of screw, a dust cap, the shift lever, a plastic concave washer with a rectangular hole, two round bronze washers, a bronze washer with a rectangular hole, and a thick metal washer. They are attached with braze-ons. Does anyone else have the same levers that could help me figure out how to put them back together? Also, when i get them back together, what should I grease on them and what should I NOT grease on them? Here is a picture. Thank you for your help!

I'm still havin issues finding the assembly order for this shifter. I searched the post you gave me and found nothing that looked like it had the same internals as my suntour superbe shifter. Anyone out there have an early 80's suntour superbe they're willin to tear apart to help me out? I'll post some pictures of the completed bike in the next few days...over all, I'm pretty happy with the bike. Looks like new...it will probably ride BETTER than new.

I've got '85 SunTour Cyclone shifters on a Cannondale. Not sure how similar/different they are. If this doesn't get resolved I'll pull one apart and report back.
