Default 1939 pickup hood latch assembly question

Can someone please post pictures of how the hood latch/ornament is assembled on a 39 pickup? I have pieced my hood ornament/latch together from parts I have gathered from ford barners.
Thanks, Seth

Here is a shot looking at the back side of an installed hood release. May not show the detail you need, though:

thanks. I cleaned the parts and reassembled the handle. still locked in the side ways position to the left. Mistakenly I cleaned all the parts forgetting which side is up. There was a slight bit of damage where the edges of the square hole rubbed the base of the boxed section of the shaft: thus I put that up. The rub bar sees OK. The bolts holding it on appeared rusted In place. I see no reason to remove it. What next?

Stay safe and strong

Clem you have to close the hood to be able to turn the handle back.

The knub on the radiator that the disc locks to, also pushes up the "pivot lock plate" to release the locking tabs.

Try pushing where the radiator receiver (knub) would hit and turn the handle at the same time.

Use a screwdriver not your finger. If you use a finger, turn the handle slowly or you'll pinch the heck out of your finger. Only has to be depressed for about 10degrees turn of the handle.

Back at it.
It seems to me someone had a diagram of how the latch goes together. I've looked in my threads and don't see it. Bruce is coming by tomorrow to give assembly as try.
Thanks

I need to paint my hood. When I remove the latch again I will take lots of photos. No promises on timelines. I used to have pictures of assemble before. That was a while back. I usually take things apart, take pictures, and put it back.

My Friend Bruce Metcalf made a visit here today before the storm. We find that the shaft with the bolt on the on the bottom wobbles in its mounting. It looks like it doesn't allow the edge of the disk to get in position We used one of the photos you guys provided to be sure the disk was right-side up. Thanks Bruce. Golly that was a fun flogging an old Ford. Someone have an extra disk, please. Thanks for all your advise on this challenge. At the moment I have a matching-color bungee holding the hood nose down in place.

Seeing this post may spark some motivation.
