Catching the thread late, but I'm another of the gully fans here and have received alot of assistance for J.W. over the years. You won't find a more rewarding project. Also Jan is most accomodating and experienced and he can give you directions for any parts sourcing you need during the rebuild. These are great sounding organs. I'm pleased that the previous owner chose to share it with you rather than sending it to the dump.

The house organist [organ student] outgrew the small pedal board on an old baldwin in about 6 months. Already trying pieces that include chimes, so something with a 3rd manual is on the wish list. I think we will be happy with the Premier a long time. I am going to try the repairs listed once I have the manuals and some confidence with a soldering iron. One funny story. When the movers got it in the house we discovered it has to live in the front room. They could not get it through the interior doors. The wonderful sound of the organ outweighs the desire for a more private studio. The headphone jack functions, so its all good.
Your PR service manual left Glenwood Springs, Colorado yesterday via First Class mail.
As is the case with all my manual sales, I will help you as needed by email or phone.
