Pedal Car Restoration

I am restoring a very old Triang Vanwall child's pedal car. When I took it to pieces I photographed all the stages for reference when I came to rebuild. Unfortunately strip down was a good 2 years ago and now I can't find the memory card with the pics on. I'm struggling to work out how the steering wheel shaft connects to the steering arms. Does any one have an old pedal car that they could take some photos of please, or any other material that may be useful.
Thanks
Ian

The ones I had years ago, the steering shaft was just a long round bar that had a z in the bottom end, and went into
a slot/hole in the steering arm, that operated both wheels

Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

YouTube is often helpful for things like this, amazing what other folk find the inclination to film and post videos on.

It's helped me with things like switching tin top service warning lights off and adjusting tin top clocks etc.
