If the taking lens isn't focusing at infinity properly, the adjustment involves loosening the focus knob and resetting its position. Then you can adjust the viewing lens to match- there is a set screw on its mounting flange to the upper right side; all the lens shrouding needs to be removed to get to this.

Rick Oleson might be able to guide you through shimming the screen, ask him. But remember- the important thing is how the taking and viewing lenses are aligned, not what the viewing lens shows on the screen.
Thanks. Those are invaluable pieces of advice. I will try putting a ground glass on the film plane and follow your tip to check focus on the taking lens.
Rick does provide directions on shimming the focusing screen. However I do not feel comfortable taking the shroud off and adjusting the focusing of the viewing lens etc.
