Default YF-16 MLG bay differed from the F-16A one?

As I have read in magazine about the YF-16 prototypes some equipments were not inside of its MLG bays but inside fuselage right behind its MLG bays.
Does anybody here have some sketch drawing pics of the general arrengement of these areas on prototypes ?

Bellow is the MLG bay from F-16A I post here under fair use of images for illustration purposes only.



Thanks for any help

At our original F-16 Flight test AMU, there were some great shots of the YF-16 gear and some decent shots of the wheel wells. The YF's gear wells were essentially bare compared to the production jets. For started, you can omit the halon bottle, anti-ice probe can, manual JFS pump, from the left MLH well pictured. In the right well, omit the battery.

IIRC, there were only 1 or 2 hydraulic filter bowls in the YFs.
