W-C Headmate (Head Mate) Instruction Plate

Good Day... I've bought a boat with a Wilcox-Crittenden Head Mate head installed. I know it is not many peoples' favorite, but there was also a rebuild kit with the boat so I'm going to give it a chance to show it is a poor unit before replacing it.

I have found installation and rebuild instructions all over the internet. Those instructions also refer to an "Operator Instruction Plate" described as an item one would post near the unit so users know how to operate the head when doing their business. I cannot find a scan of those user instructions anywhere and I will frequently have guests who will be unfamiliar with operation.

Does anybody have same and could they be made available?

Many Thanks Hank

Mine is a Skipper II 1550 (I think) and I have the plate. The problem is that the plate predates holding tanks, and would incline my guests to overfill the tank. (This has happened) I plan to make my own instructions.
