    Pre-war Compur Rapid B not working...?

    Hi, all -

    I have an old Compur Rapid I've been working on. Shutter is firing correctly at all times, and T is working. The B lever appears to be springing into position and has tension holding it against the speed ring, so I'm assuming the hair spring is in place. Still, the B setting doesn't work. Shutter won't cock, pressing the release alone doesn't do anything.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Got it - the blade actuating lever, that gets caught to open the blades on B&T was bent. Would catch on T but not on B. 'Tis working now.
