Mr. Blanton, I have a Wilcox & White Angelus as well as a Symphony
player so I understand what you're looking at. If you'll remove the
four screws holding on the center rear panel you'll be able access
the two exhausters mounted on the reservoir.
There should be one spring from each of these exhausters to the area
on either side of the little door for the piano pedal access. (You
should be able to see the original indentations.) That will hold the
exhauster shut and raise the pedal on the front.
