I’m currently restoring a Marklin Heavy Field Gun No 8065. I need to find out whether the spur with a screw on the firing lever underneath the gun goes above or below the axle. Before I started restoring it, it was below the axle, but the whole gun had been really messed about with. I’ve rebuilt it & left the firing lever with the spur below. This impedes elevation somewhat & doesn't allow the firing mechanism to be cocked at high elevation. Can someone help as to whether it should be above or below? If it is above I suspect someone has bent the firing lever!
