Golden Sabre Help

I have an old Tesoro Golden Sabre with the metal box, two coils and hip mount kit. It also has the 2D/PoIo switch. I have always had a lot of success with it as I thoroughly know it's tone IDs and operation.
Last year it went wrong giving a continual tone. I contacted Pentechnic but they weren't interested. They said it was probably riined by dampness and it wasn't worth repairing. I opened it up and found a capacitor was loose, so I resoldered it and it worked. Unfortunately, dampness had affected the connecting wires and several broke off as I put it back together. I now don't know where these attach. I contacted Pentechnic again and, again they weren't interested.
Can anyone help? Thank you.

I will check out the diagram. I didn't realise there were several different versions. Mine is the old metal box type with three knobs in a row and two switches.

I think Pentechnic thought it would be too expensive to repair.

If someone has more to offer I would' be pleased to hear
