    Hi,

    anyone ever take a pentax Me Super apart? i got one that my friend buy only for the lens, and the body came with the top part disassembled. so i thought to gave it a go at re assembling it :smile:

    i manage to put it back and the light meter works, the winding works, shutter release work. but there are three small parts (one looks like a small lever, and two screws) that i cant tell where they came from. i suspect that it have something to do with the shutter, because now it only works as bulb every time i wind and release the shutter.

    so in short, if anyone have experience on this matter, it would be great if they can chime in :smile:


    cheers,

    dave

    Bulb is the only mechanical speed on the camera so an extra lever may not be from the shutter but elsewhere in the camera.
    There are several on the top wind side of the machine and more on the bottom.
    Because the top was removed, don't assume the mechanic didn't play around on the bottom too.
