Pottery/Gare Kiln Manual

Question
Hi, I have recently been given an old Gare kiln,
model: 182267
serial number: 32388
It has been over 30 years since I fired a similar kiln and this one came without a manual, so I am in desperate need of some sort of instructions/manual.
This kiln is at my daughter's home in the US where I am visiting until the end of February (live in Sweden) and I am hoping to fire a number of pots for a show before I go back home...
Hope you can help me out on this!!
Best regards
Lena Lee

Will answer any questions on hand building, wheel, glaze, firing. Speciality questions to include those in glaze calculation and development, firing techniques. Please do not send questions on identifying pottery. Although I would love to add this to my question topics, I have a retreat to run as well as the studio and volunteering on AllExperts, and therefore do not have the available time to research indentification and marks. Thank you for understanding.

Have 12 years solid experience in glaze calculation and formulation as well as problem solving in glaze chemistry. I am the first potter in the United States to have developed a complete package of pottery equipment blueprints for a studio. The blueprints include wheels, kilns, studio furniture, wedgeboards, raku kilns, slab rollers, ball mills and studio tools.
