We apply symbolic dynamics to continue our previous study of a symmetric collinear restricted 3--body problem, where the equal mass primaries perform elliptic collisions, while a third massless body moves in the line between the primaries. Based on properties of the homothetic orbit, which is a transversal heteroclinic orbit beginning and ending in triple collision hyperbolic equilibria and using a global Poincaré section, we describe the possible itineraries of binary collisions an orbit can have.
