You have a lot of parts there for one carriage. Looks like a log beam conversion for the American or you have a New England style carriage mixed in the pile. That would not be the normal set up for the American but I have seen it before.
Yes I figured out that I might have a mix of parts.  The head blocks that were actually on what was left of the block on top of the carriage where home made out of angle iron.
I have the friction disk version, not the belt drive version.  I cannot find any documentation as to what should be in this configuration.

What I do know is that I have figured out how it works enough to know that I have enough parts and I got all of those parts un-frozen to get it actually working.
I also picked up some spare parts from an even bigger mill, I think a Lane, that I hope to be able to trade some day to someone for American Sawmill parts.

To start with I will be powering it with the PTO from my tractor, I hope to eventually find a diesel engine that I can set up as a permanent power plant.

I of course, would like to find more ducumentation.

I have an old Timberking (Belsaw) that I am still working on. Sawed a few boards with it and now trying to get it running and cutting well.

I am currently resurrecting my fatherís old Lane sawmill. Last time we ran it was about 8 years ago, I have got all the mechanical aspects of it running and greased but the project is on hold until the spring when I can replace a section of room that is almost collapsed blocking the log deck.

So you will be 'sawen by the notches'

I havenít heard that term before. Referring to the set works? 
Also I meant the roof is collapsing not room

Yes the setworks. That's what made lane famous. Those notches take all the math out of it.
