    Thank you everyone for their comments. I hope I didn't start a fire with the question.

    When I said calibrate, I meant that the meter is working but because I have never used a meter on the hassey before, I am not sure if its readings are correct. I guess both comments, about the electrical configuration and about how to check the readings are correct as they end up leading to the same point of getting the correct requirements.

    The meter was correct when it left the factory.

    Absent any visible damage, you have no reason to __assume__ that it's incorrect now.

    Shoot some average scenes, as I recommended waaay back in post #3, and see how the negatives look.

    Well I just loaded up the meter with fresh battery (3LR44's) and with respect to my meter, all exposures are about -4 stops. I had to set the sensitivity to ISO 25 to get -2 stops difference for ISO 100.

    Think would actually need to open it up and bring up the metering.

    A four-stop error is certainly beyond its internal adjustment range.

    It needs to go to the repair shop. This is not a DIY project.

    A better way would be to use a hammer or large rock.

    Umm, Frank... it's not a matter of faith but a matter of knowledge. Leigh will be the first to tell you about his background and experience... if you don't already know. Leigh speaks bluntly but honestly and knows what he's talking about. If he thought he was talking to one of his fellow professional camera repairmen than faith might be an issue. But that does not seem like the situation here.
