Beware, Olympic reels are extremely susceptible to the white powder of death if they are not meticulously cleaned following any trip near saltwater. If you gently whisper the word "ocean" near it it will start to rot.

I found a schematic for it online after a bunch of looking around.

Thanks for the warning Sudsy. I'll make sure to clean it well and keep an eye on it. I got it for free and it's in good shape. They must have taken good care of it because it was used for a number of years on saltwater and there's really no corrosion to speak of. Other than some scuffed up paint and chipped chrome, it looks like new...especially on the inside.
