Hmmmm, I just donated mine to Charity....I had it for over 10 years.....It's by Weslo? does it have dusty kitty-pawprints on it?, check under "Healthrider" on E-Bay, you may find info. (If it's mine PM me and I'll mail you the instructions I found afterward.)
I used it this way (undergoing construction, I no extra space so it had to go). I put the tension piston on 2, gripped the handleswide, palms forward, feet on pedals facing slightly outward to work inner thighs.....do 10 reps, switch hand position to bicep curl style. increase reps daily....
If you want more info, let me know.....have fun!
