Jennings Standard Chief, terribly neglected

I just acquired a Standard Chief who had a tough life, but worthy of a restore. I seem to be missing several parts:
Payout lever cam arm bracket V26-13CSP
Payout Cam Arm V4-1293CSP
Clock Spring V9-26D
"Bracket" V4-1295
Spring PG-377
Those should get the reels spinning, move on from there. I have some pictures. Looking for the parts if anyone has a suggestion.
Thanks

After finding a electro-mechanical mechanism on eBay having the parts I needed, thanks to Dave for marquee and payout card and springs, Rick Frink, and another e-bay parts sale for the coin chute the chief is back in action. I know it is not totally original wood and color (powder coat), but I'll be keeping him or pass on to one of my kids. Fifty years ago I did a Caille Cadet, got it running and cleaned it up and gave to my oldest son, next project is to actually restore it right. I have four kids, so hopefully I can find and restore a Mills, and a Pace for them. If all goes well I end up with a Watling. Loving the smell of kerosene again.
