Amphion made Ampico players, so information about them may be useful. However, there is not a lot of difference in the way the player pianos are tubed. There is one mechanism per note, and there is one tube from the mechanism to the tracker bar. (I recall that the last three notes at the top are not used.) Any book on player repair should be able to help you figure it out.

The only other things you will have to figure out are the tracking regulator, the pedals and other expression pneumatics, the motor, and the speed regulator. Although the mechanisms vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, they are not difficult to figure out. The Player Piano Co. in Wichita has a lot of information, as well.
