Takumar 200mm F4 M42

Does anyone have or know where I could find an exploded view of this lens? I got taken for a ride on fleabay with this one. It looks nice, aperature blades are clean and snappy, but you cannot turn the focus adjustment at all.
Thought I might spend a cold and rainey day tearing into it. I would like at least an exploded view of the lens before I start, so I can at least have an idea of what I am getting into.
For $10.00 it is at least good for a paper weight.

An exploded view - it appears that you are after a service manual, which I have never seen for Pentax/Takumar lenses.

This might be the closest that you may get(???):

Thanks for the replies. I have searched and cannot find too much in the way of diagrams or info on the lens. I may just open it up anyway, it will be a learning experience.

It's a lens worth repairing.
