Default Sumiko MMT counterweight

Good morning everyone.
I am looking for someone who can help me about the counterweight of the Sumiko MMT.
I have access to this tonearm without the counterweight, I would like to rebuild it, but I need all the dimensions and weight.
Is there any owner who can give me this information?
More questions: the attack of the needle is the classic type SME?
This arm can be suitable on a Thorens TD 166 MKII?
Thanks and a greeting.

The Sumiko was built by Jelco (SA-370). I don't have a drawing, but attached is the SA-750. Close to the same arm. Not sure of the weight, but if you do a web search, or contact a Jelco dealer, you should be able to find it. The heavy counterweights are typically sold on eBay. Same for the head shell. It will work fine on a TD-166 MKII, but you will need to make a arm mount.

Just checked eBay, there is a standard counterweight for the SA-370. Weight 110 gm.
