Not quite what y'all were looking for, but I found this today in one of my Hardy boxes. Thought you might enjoy.

Since Photobucket has ruined so many threads like this I thought I'd try to add the little bit I have. This paperwork was in the box with a Hardy JLH #5 that I bought new in 1994 or so. The print is small so I tried to zoom in and break it up into multiple pictures so it's legible.

Here is one that came with a 3 3/4" Ocean Prince.

And another from the original JLH run in 1992. I didn't compare against the 1995 revision above.

Here is the backing capacity paper for the Hardy Marquis fly reel 4 5 6 7.. and so on - they are there...
I know it is a bugger to read it - but the No.5 and No.6 are there - just tough as they are mixed in
Tried to write it so Google can find it :

Gents,
How about the instructions for converting the wind of the Hardy Husky or Silent Check Salmon Marquis 1, 2, or 3? These beauties are not well known but among my favorite functional Hardy reels. The Husky is a light weight reel that has a disc drag silent check which works well with its wide spool design for applying additional control with your fingers on a big trout. The Salmon Marquis SC has the wrap around rims for adding additional stopping power by palming.

Hardy Husky, silent check. Conversion of winding direction should be the same for Marquis salmon silent check.

Does anyone have capacities for the 2 7/8" standard width Perfect. My best guess looks to be about 60 yards of 20# with a WF4 line.
