Yes I believe it is called the spindle sleigh bed 343-8200 but it is not the others that you mentioned. The downloadable instructions that you have are also not for the right crib but thank you very much!

JCPenney Spindle Sleigh Baby Crib 343-8200 Assembly Instructions

I can't scan or upload pictures but I can tell you what my instructions say.

First, you should not try to put the 343-8200 crib together alone. The manufacturer recommends a two-person assembly and to read the instructions manual before beginning. Wait until you find a copy since putting the bed together incorrectly may be dangerous.

Get a copy of the instructions for your crib before you proceed and follow them to avoid injury. You should also check to see if you are missing any parts and whether or not the bed has been included in a recall.

While you wait,check to see that you have all of the crib's parts.

?Left front post
?Right front post
?Daybed rail
?6 by 70mm 4 Allen bolts
?Allen wrench
?Left end assembly
?Right end assembly
?Back assembly
?9 Allen bolts, 6 by 50mm
?Mattress support
?13 Allen bolts, 6 by 20mm
?Front assembly
?Safety rail
?Left foot board post
?Right foot board post

The manufacturer indicates that the tools that you will need are a Phillips screwdriver and an Allen wrench to tighten the bolts.

My instructions (which may not be for your crib) say to start by attaching the front posts to the rail of the daybed by inserting the dowels (sticking out from the rail) into the pilot holes on the front posts and then to secure the posts and rail together using 70mm Allen bolts (4). Tighten them using Allen wrench.

Attach the end assemblies to the sides of the front posts with pilot holes using the 50mm Allen bolts (4). Again, tighten the bolts.

Attach the back assembly to the other end of the end assemblies the 50 mm Allen bolts (4) tightening the bolts completely.

You will then position the mattress support inside the crib with the arms on each corner extended up and out.

My crib offers three positions for the height of the crib mattress and recommends using the highest mattress position available and to use a crib mattress that is at least 27 1/4 inches by 51 5/8 inches and at the most 6 inches thick.

My crib is only to be used for a child who weighs less than 50 pounds and no more than 2 feet 11 inches tall and when those limits are reached to discontinue using the crib (or go ahead and convert it?).

Have your assistant hold the mattress support in position while you attach it.

Line up the arms with the lowest set of pilot holes on the inside of the front posts and back assembly, attaching the arms to these pieces using the 20mm Allen bolts and tighten them completely.

Position the front assembly between the front posts and on the daybed rail then attach the top and bottom of the front assembly to the front posts using the 70mm Allen bolts tightening the bolts with the Allen wrench until there is no rotation.

With my crib, I've had to re-tighten the Allen bolts occasionally!

When I was finished, I gathered all of the leftover parts and hardware and stored them for later when they would be needed to convert the crib into a daybed and afterwards into a full-size bed.
