Unfortunately, the diagram looks absolutely nothing like my XL7...So it really doesn't help me. Thank you though for getting back to me so quickly.

Sorry it did not help.

 

The only other diagrams and instructions I have is for the Arieo or Reno. If you would like I can post those or OPT out of the question and put it back up on the question list.

 

Let me know what you would like me to do.

 

Happy New Year,

Sincerely,

Dale
