Teletype 2101AB Inktronic Printer - AN/UGR-14

I need manuals and wiring diagrams for the 2101AB version of the Inktronic. Please send me email if you have any to copy/borrow/rent/buy.
The manuals I need are BSP No. 578-500-101, 578-500-113, 578-500-114, 578-500-115, 578-500-201, 578-500-301, 578-500-704, 578-500-705, 578-500-803, 578-500-804, 578-500-805, and Wiring Diagram Package WDP 0256.

Note - the earlier documents call this the "INKTRONIC" printer and the later ones call it the "DATASPEED" printer

AN/UGR-14 Inktronic Receive-Only Page Printer Set. Teletype Model 2101AB-013-AA-002--MP serial no 1186
Consists of floor cabinet, friction feed non-impact printer and control logic. 7.00 unit code, 600 baud.

Ink specification. Paper specification.

How does it work? Electrostatic control of a stream of ink droplets.
Maximum printing rate is 120 characters/second (1200wpm)

A nozzle charged to -1900v produces a stream of ink droplets that are pulled toward the paper by a +10,000v charge on the platen.
Undesired droplets are blocked by a +500v gating electrode.
Desired droplets are steered up/down & left/right by deflection electrodes. Droplets impact the paper to create 8x10 dot characters (8x14 in the ASCII version).

There are 40 nozzles across a line, each of which is responsible for writing 2 characters. Nozzles are energized sequentially.
