Well, I cheated a bit. I have two identical dishwashers in my kitchen, so I put the broken upper basket next to the functioning one from the other machine and simply duplicated the assembly. The drawings provided were OK, but there's nothing like the real thing. It was working in less than 15 minutes (took me about 5 minutes to figure out that I had to remove the newly installed spray arm from the hub to make toom for the nut driver need to tighten down the screw on the spray arm bracket ... duh).
