I just posted a repair manual for the Overland brass Little Joe. Might be helpful to some owners. This one belongs to Mark Spookshow. It was absolutely GORGEOUS-- but ran like cr&^%&^$&^^p. All fixed now, actually BETTER than new. The document is here. http://u18b.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/LitJOErepairMANUAL.pdf Remember, Spookshow buys stuff for his encyclopedia, evaluates it, and then sells it to get his money back. So if you are interested in this particular piece I have improved, contact him.
