Default Xcell 60 1003 Stacked frame Flybar question

I bought this about 7 years ago I took the head apart and then I moved a few times and I thought I kept all the parts, but I can't get the fly bar to lock in. The flybar arms that control the flybar do they keep it centered or is there another parts. Does anyone have some pictures of the flybar? Can't find any on the internet of the flybar. If I push the arms all the way down the push rods are angled which is probably okay, but I wanted to check and see if I'm missing something.

Default Flybar

According to that it doesn't show anything other then the arms locking the flybar that would work, but the push-rods going up to those arms will be angled in and not straight up and down.

Default Xcell 60 fires up afer 8 years of storage.

I just put some collars on each side of the flybar it worked fine. Bluprints didn't show enough detail. Got it started up tonight first time after 8 years of sitting. I'm sure glad I dried it out when I stored it 8 years ago. All I need now is to track the blades reverse the gyro direction and a few other things. I bought it 8 years ago off eBay from a local guy who was afraid to fly it he was a novice, and I hovered it once didn't fly too good. I got into drag racing, so I put the RC stuff on the shelf for the last 8 years. Now the race car has been sitting, and I'm back in RC again. Right now I'm flying a HK-500 trex clone which is a lot of fun, but I want to get this xcell in the air again. Just need to find a safe place to do it motor is too large for local parks. RC clubs are setup for airplanes make you fly helicopters across the runway, so not that easy to tune when you are 75 feet away.
