    Yippee!! Oh joyful day! That'll save ya a few bucks. If you are as mechanically adept as you state, maybe you should get started doing camera repairs, I hear there is a major need for them in these here parts.

    Not sure if I'm ready to do work for others yet but I'm never afraid to try. The shutter blades are still gummed from age. I need to find out what is safe for use on them.

    You have the biggest part done. Lighter fluid or Coleman lantern fuel & flush clean it. Although they're both Naptha I seem to have less residue with the lantern fuel.
    Remove the optics, use a drop or two of solvent, work the shutter & repeat. Work the aperture too, it's going to have some solvent migrate into it and there will be some surface tension & residue to overcome if it's not worked.

Is it a common failure? I have repaired my own 35mm equipment before so I have some experience and mechanical knowledge. I really want to get this up and working. Thanks!

    There were never any issues, of which I am aware, with the Sekosha. I think it is a basic Synchro-Compur derivitive.
