    Fixing a Bilora Bella

    I just bought a Bilora Bella from an antique warehouse, but its in rough shape!
    Seems to be some kind of spring missing from the shutter mechanism- and the shutter doesn't fire even when I try to do it manually (pressing the little hooky thingy with my finger inside the camera). i really don't know anything about camera repair, so anything would be helpful! Is there anywhere I could get more information on how everything should work etc?

    Thanks

    Here is the manual , I found a 66 and 3C models at the google , same or not , I dont know the brand name of the shutter also. Tell us what is written for the producer of the shutter ? And if there is a shutter serial number , give it to us also , Someone with a 50s catalogs could help.

    Here are the wonderful sites , bottom ones are for idea also.
