Would like Globe Scout 680A schematic and parts list

The biggest difference between the two transmitters was the cabinet.  Most of the 680A had the "shadow" type (the one with the "overhang") whereas the 680 did not (the front panel was "flush" with the cabinet front).  There were a few changes in the shielding but no real serious changes in the circuitry.

Started working on a Globe Scout 680A that I picked up a couple of years ago and want to go through and replace all the electrolytics before I turn it on for the first time. Would like to have a schematic and parts list to ease the task but so far no luck.  There is a manual on BAMA for the 680 but nothing for the 680A.  No other hits after doing various searches.  Of course, the manuals seem to be available for sale but I am stoutly resisting that route (for now, anyways). 

So does anyone have a manual or know of a source for a manual?  Again this is for the 680A not the 680. The two seem quite close but I notice some differences such as a shield around the PA and PA tanks (this may not be original - if not, it is done quite nicely). 
I can (and will, in need be) ferret out the differences by poking and proding.  Certainly wouldn't mind having a manual to make the job easier.
