I don't have access to this, but I have K Krishnamoorthy who gives some info in Cha 25. I could send scans of the four pages diect
if this would help but I suspect you know more already.

He describes Type 1, II and III and gives formulae for type I cdf median ..., and his StatCalc does some calculations of parameters,
so I could compute test values if you tell me what you want. Takes parameters a and b.
