77 450sl soft top

From some of my previous posts, you may know I am currently the caretaker of a 77 450SL.

This might seem like a pretty basic question, but, I don't have an owners manual so.....

How do you raise/lower the soft top? There is a crank/handle on the interior side wall behind the drivers seat. I assume this is part of my answer? I found the lever and cap tools, I think I can figure out how to get the hard top on and off, but I'm not sure about the soft top? Can somebody point me in the right direction?
