Well, in my copy of the Moog '67 catalogue there is a picture of the
6552 Bode frequency shifter with lid off and the text is readable.

>From left to right:

Knob labeled Threshold
Switch labeled Squelch with OFF in upper position and ON in lower position
Switch labeled Detuning with UP in upper position and DOWN in lower position.
2 Pot axis for trimming labeled Balance
1 Pot axis for trimming labeled Sideband suppression
2 Pot axis for trimming labeled Balance
A nice red bulb for power
A power switch.

The cursuit has 2 transformers for input isolation and 1 transformer
for output isolation. The cursuit uses 4 more transformers for it's
internal use.

Anyone who got a spare, please send it to me ;)
