    Aye, and there's the rub! I wish I had some of the factory manuals for shutter repair and servicing too. The best I've done are web searches and a few used books.

    The up side to all of this is you have a shutter and lens that is relatively inexpensive to replace should things go terribly wrong. So I suppose you could just experiment a little bit and keep good notes.

    As far as "proper procedure" I can't help you there because all I know are a few shortcut tricks to get dead and jammed stuff working just long enough to finish a roll or whatever.

    They're great copy cameras. I used them for many years in the studio.

    If you don't have a 4x5 enlarger you could get a 4x5 graflarger back cheap off ebay and put it on the grafloc back and there you have a very nice enlarger / copy camera.
