I picked this up on Ebay.
The wiring of the solenoids to the soldering lugs has broken off inside the panel.
The insulation is crumbling from age, and the wires need replacing really.
I have no idea what wire from the solenoid coil goes to what.
I could really use a wiring diagram or guidance here, please.

(The thought occurred to me to convert the wiring inside, which has several wires soldered to one lug with a terminal strip and put terminal lugs on each of the new wires --- not original, but far easier to maintain).

Thank you in advance for your help.

Can you post pictures of the insides?

The wires broke from the solenoids as I was taking the pics. As Tim Wetzel from Knock Doorbells says "handle them like butterfly wings". The wires are the windings of the solenoid, about 28 ga which they put insulation wrap on and soldered together. I don't know why they didn't solder connectors on the wires and connect them with a terminal block instead (seems neater and easier to maintain).
