    I presume you have the spring, and just need to return it to its home? Should be a web page around somewhere with photos. What kind of spring is it?

    I found this page which shows how to fix a Flash Kodamatic and claims it's just a scaled down Supermatic -- maybe this will help?
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    Gustavo,

    Which spring?

    The main spring should come around the cam counter-clockwise (12 o-clock) and attach to a spur at the top of the left side gear train (9 o-clock)

    The hair springs for the T&B arms should be self explaining

    The second main spring, under the main plate, goes from 9 o-clock to the cocking arm at 12 o-clock.

    The self release spring assm goes at 6 o-clock. Tension this 1-1/2 strokes of the self release arm but NO MORE.

    I'll see if I still have pix for this,
