I've got a cutaway from 'The Aeroplane' but it's not very clear. The front spar was the pivot and the rear spar was cranked up and down. The front spar pivot was near the lower edge of the spar.

The whole wing moved but the pylon/nacelle (called the 'bridge' on the cutaway) had no moving section. There looks to be quite a large gap to allow movement of the rear spar.

One article I have says the range of movement was 0 degrees to +13, normal position being +2 degrees. Another article says -2 degrees to +12.5, normal position 0 degrees.
