What you need, I think, is a Service Manual - one that tells and shows diagrams, of how the machine parts fit together and how to disassemble and adjust, etc.

Here's a possible source for a service manual for your model, at upper left:

and here is another source:

There may be others - but the second the those two looks like the real thing that you are looking for. Let me know, if I can help you further with this.
