    Elekm and everyone else,

    Thanks for the help. Funny how each of these posts leads to a new question:

    What type of optical cleaner is the best to use? Will anything due (even something for cleaning your eyeglasses)?

    RE:stuck pins, Usually this is caused by dry lube or dirt in the retainer.
    You might try a very small application of oil(a drop on the end of a toothpick) & then work the pin in & out. there is a spring behind them so it shouldn't be difficult.
    The advance problem is also Probably dry lube, and needs to be serviced. There's a lever that's not free enough to work smoothly & is causing you're problem. Working the camera through several cycles may clean it up but I doubt it.

    The kind for eyeglasses is ideal. It's nonabrasive, and it won't damage the anti-reflective coating on the lens.

    The shutter works on all speeds but is quite slow in the 1/2 - 1 second range. How can I get these shutter speeds happy?
    If you can dismantle the front of the camera and access the shutter blades you can try the "lighter fuel" treatment (Graflex owners have been using this trick for long time). What you do is squirt a few drops of lighter fuel on the bladew and mechanism and operate the shutter a few times. It should work OK at the lower speeds. Then let it dry and using a toothpick oil the pins and springs. Use machine oil (sewing machine oil is very good) and only use minute amounts.

    One word of warning though. If you do not feel confident about this do not attempt it. Better sent the camera for a proper CLA
