    Yashica Electro 35 GSN focusing problems

    Hello friends,

    the age of my Yashica shows up in a bad way - I was so glad to have it fixed, when the problem occured. First I noticed some unsmooth focusing, then it became really harsh - maybe some sand got into focusing helicoid (if there is any), or just the old grease finally leaked out. How do I cure it? I understand that I would need a full lens disassemble to get the dirt out - can you give me a hint how should I do it? Can it be accessed from the front of the lens, or I need to disassemble the whole camera again?

    Any help would be very nerve-saving and valuable.

    Best wishes from Moscow,
    Zhenya

    Try this web site www.kyphoto.com/classic/forum I used to frequent this site some time ago when I was actively collecting and repairing cameras. By the way I have a GSN that is now a book end, but in it's day was a great camera.
