Does anyone have any photos or a diagram of the internals of a 451 headlamp assembly?

A friend of mine encountered an extremely severe pothole that appears to have actually jarred the projector from the adjuster mechanism temporarily, resulting in the driver's side beam shining much lower than it should. Attempting to adjust it does result in some upward movement of the projector, but it eventually reaches the end of the adjustment range before it can be properly aimed.

I'd like to see what the actually adjuster mechanism looks like and how it operates before I can determine how best to help him correct this.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Bulb is seated correctly. I can see the entire projector is misaligned within the chrome housing, unfortunately.
