I found this. Very good for pictures and (page 2) diagram of components.

Handy tip for removing the resevoir:

Once you've removed the two 10mm nuts at the back, move the airbox out the way and use a long wide screwdriver or pry bar under the resevoir to pop it out.
Much easier than trying to tug it out and spilling LHM :)

There's a nice diagram of the steering column showing the universal joint which occaisionally needs attention on page 2, as well. :)

PS The forum clock is still on winter time. :D
