I ran one many years ago.  The dogging system was the same as Frick.  Seems reasonable, since Fahrquahr was made in York, Pa and Frick in Waynesboro, Pa.  The difference is that the Frick is not quite as wide as the Fahrquahr.  Probably a way around copyright.  I used a Frick dog on the Farhquahr ratchet, but had to grind a bit out of the Frick dog. 

I don't remember too much different about the husk.  Seemed pretty much like Frick, as well.  Its been 40 yrs since I ran it.

Are you doing a rebuild?

Yes i am going to rebuild. At first i didnt think i had all of the components to the feedworks but after looking at a couple pictures online im pretty sure that i have everything but i need some closer more detailed photos to be sure. Also i am missing a dog so if anybody out there happens to have farquhar or frick bits and pieces please let me know.
