Default kidney oil tank/battery box picts request

Hey all, as most of you don't know, I'm putting a 1974 together. Started with frame and cases. I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out how exactly the battery box/oil tank/ regulator all went together on a stock bike. My parts manual helps a bit, but not enough. No, I'm Not sure if all the frame tabs are on my frame. Anybody got picts of that assembly to help me out.

Thanks
Joe

The battery tray support leans towards the head bolts to the trans. make sure the bolts aren't too long as the one closest to the out case will interfere with the trans gears. There are 2 rubber isolators on it. One on each side. On accessory block on the left side of the frame above the motor mount (rectangle with square holes in it), place one rubber isolator in the bottom hole. Install negative battery cable to the top hole now, pain to get in later. Install battery tray from the left side onto those 2 rubber isolators. There is a tab on the right side of the battery tray that will be located out by the diagonal brace up towards the seat rail. Install another rubber isolator there. The oil tank has a tab on each side that attaches to those isolators. Then install the three bolts through the end of the battery box. The regulator installs on the battery tray where the studs are sticking out. There are 2 'coves' on each end of the battery tray on the right side. The front 'cove' is for the vent hose that comes out of the cam chest, routes in the recess between the case and rear motor mount and goes to the forward or 'middle' fitting. The 'cove' on the rear is for the battery positive cable to get to the solenoid and for the return line that comes off the top of the trans, under the starter, through the hole in the battery tray support and up to the top fitting by the cap. The supply line is the lowest fitting and routes with the vent line by the motor mount down under the motor to the oil pump.
