Has anyone seen a mechanical chopper Keithley 147/148 inside?

MegaVolt:
Maybe there are some photos? Or does someone have a non-working block to disassemble it?

I wouldn't expect that much of a difference to the picture shown here:

Curious, I've searched a bit, but couldn't find a mechanical chopper based on piezo beams, while reed relays have at least been considered.

A time ago I had a HP 425A Microvoltmeter from the late 60‘s, it had a electro-optic chopper.
A motor with a segmented disc rotating between a lightbulb and photoresistors.
Well sealed, there was not much to see from the outside, unfortunately.

Fortunately doktor pyta took his broken chopper apart and took some pictures last night.
