    I just got a dial set Compur shutter in the mail and the cocking lever is jammed and the release seems to be stuck. Does anyone have a diagram of how to disassemble these?
    Thanks!

    Make sure it's NOT set for B or T (there is a small dial on the front for B, T, and timed settings). Cocking while on the B or T setting will mess up the shutter.

    As for a manual... I don't have one anymore, but I recall seeing a web page on them. I'll see if I can dig up the link and post it here.
