David Odess has prices on his website for CLA's. Other vendors are probably similar. Without looking it up, the cost is roughly $200.00 for each component.
The back is probably the least likely to need service, and the lens/shutter perhaps the most likely, especially for a C series lens.
Since you are in the west, some folks have recommended Samy's camera in L.A. as a good repair source, they have a Hasselblad trained tech on staff, so I understand.
Also in the west is Steve Choi at Steve's Camera Repair in Culver City CA.
I put together just such a kit from KEH years ago for around $500 (w/ the old style back) and had excellent results w/ it. The 'blad did not suit my style of shooting, but I appreciated the camera, once I figured out all of the interlocks! Mine had the old focus screen w/ the circle spot in the middle and I liked it just fine (I'm 62 and wear bifocals). My chrome 80 Planar was not as sharp as the Rolleiflex cameras I was used to, but it was plenty sharp enough, and had a nice way of imaging. I even tried a reflex prism in an attempt to shoot it like a 35mm camera and it was a lot of fun, although a side grip would have really helped. One thing to mention is that these cameras get a LOT more attention on the street than a TLR.
You will do well to start w/ the camera and lens that you stated, and I always recommend KEH for just about anything photographic. These are old cameras, but I've had good results just shooting them w/o an expensive CLA or anything, knock on wood.
The testers Alan mentioned are very good, but I make do w/ a $40 one and it's on the money. If you have the time you can bracket, keep notes, and figure it out w/o a tester, but that's not necessarily a lot of fun.
While I'm actively pursuing my 500C/M setup, questions regarding filters suddenly surfaced in my cranium. Accordingly, I'm looking for a continuation of the sage counsel given thus far.
As I intend to shoot black and white film exclusively, I wondered what filters are recommended?
Does Hasselblad have a unique method of attaching filters?
Again, thanks in advance for the help.
If I was buying a Hasselblad again, I would skip KEH and go straight to http://www.david-odess.com/
A polarizer is very handy to have.
The more I use my Blad the more comfortable I'm becoming with it. For practice I chase my dogs in the yard with it. I'm getting used to the long focus throw and focusing with the flip up magnifier. A left hand grip made handling easier, I was always afraid of dropping it before. I'll likely pick up a PME prism which should make chasing the dogs easier. I like the ability to configure the system for whatever I'm going to shoot, and the optics are excellent. It is my most used system, at the moment.
