    Nothing in particular, although the amount they quoted me for my MX CLA was rather expensive!

    Any chance the F2 maestro, Sover Wong, could help out? Worth a try.

    I only have the earlier Nikkormat FTn. Can't comment on the meter issue as mine runs perfectly off SR44 batteries now I've fitted the conversion piece that allows it after the mercury 625 batteries became unobtainable. (Well I still have two I got in China, but I've made the conversion anyway.)

    I recently replaced all the door seals and the mirror damping pad in both my bodies with the precut kits obtainable from John Goodman. The only required extra was to get some Surgical spirit and a packet of cotton buds. Comes with full illustrated instructions and covers the FT3. John used to sell off EBay as "Interslice" but I think he doesn't do that any more. If your camera needs seals, contact Jon at 'JGood21967@aol.com'. He's based in Dallas, texas, but his service (and product) is very good.

    OP mentions jumpiness when shutter is cocked,
    is'nt there a switch that turns on the meter when the advance arm reaches a specific angle.

    Maybe that switch is twitchy.
