Default Phnuematic Retracts - Layout for Spectrum

I picked up a Spectrum from a guy that is 85% complete. The only problem is its outfitted with pneumatic retracts and I have no idea on how to complete the installation. Is there a place that shows how to plumb the retracts. There is no indication of a manufacturer on the retracts or valves. There appears to be a valve that is connected to a servo. But there are no markings on the valve as to in/out or up/down etc. If someone knows where I might get a schematic or something I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks

It looks like Rhom Airs. Not a 100% sure but looks like maybe air supply from valve to one of the center tubes, to tank on other center tube( across from each other). Both up lines to rear faceing & rear vertical tubes, and down lines to same in front.( or vice-versa)just up at one end & down at other. If you are not completely confused, then I can't help anymore Good Luck
