Repairs to 1972 37' Soverel

I have a 37' Soverel which was badly damaged during hurrican Iven a number of years ago. So far the boat has been on the beach drying.
It is time to get started - there is so much work to be done on the hull exterior at the joint where hull and deck join, all standing & running rig needs to be replaced. The mast has been repaired. It broke at the spreader level. All wireing, interior ect., needs to be redone. The engine is out but will need to be reset and tuned and shaft balanced.
The swing keel needs to have new pins and cable installed. Rudder and stearing system needs to be redone.

Question - does anyone out there have a factory specification with installation diagrams for all components installed in an original Soverel 37?

Looking forward to your help
