Default 4"-14" Monster Pipe Vise - What is missing?

Found this monsterous pipe vise yesterday and had to have it, pretty sure it should have a big multi link chain as the strap, but having a hard time visualizing what to make for it, or even how it works. Anyone out there have a complete one and know how it works?

Second pic shows the lever on back side (as it was mounted on a bench), lever has a latch that catches on the small horizontal rod, moving lever moves that shoe thing on inside. Third pic shows groove in front for chain. Fourth pic is underside of front, chain would have a bar on end of it. What I'm not understanding is how the lever holds and tightens the chain.
