I need a little help on a Rem #2 rolling block

I've got a centerfire #2 Remington rolling block to make a firing pin and retainer that fits and works. I can't find any info on this type of breech block. All I can find is the type with the cross screw firing pin retainer. All I've got to go on is intuition. I imagine the firing pin has a notch and the retainer has something similar to a gear tooth. The retainer must rotate but is restrained by the rotary extractor.

If anyone has a photo of this set up they could post I would greatly appreciate it. Here is a picture of what I have.

I believe I have a #2 in rim fire with the same extractor, I will pull it out of the safe and check. I my memory is correct and it is there I will post photos for you.

I think I have the cross piece for the Breech block with the cut to engage firing pin. I will check this afternoon

I made the new parts today and they work fine. I spent half of my life working in a machine/fabrication job shop  as an engineer, project manager and manager. We did a lot of repair and maintenance work on all kinds of machinery. A lot of what we did would be called reverse engineering, figuring out what worn out stuff should look like and how to make it.

I only had to make these parts once each. That's pretty good in itself. I'll post a picture if I get time.

I believe there should be a tit on top of the extractor to engage the drum firing pin retractor. This type of drum firing pin retractor was made for the center fire #2 rifles and some large bore center fire target pistols.

There was no tit on the rotary extractor so I put a spring on the firing pin to retract it. I have not shot it yet. I'm waiting for a barrel liner from TJ's.
