I think the shutter cock has a small set screw you need to loosen as opposed to prying it off. Not positive but I just remember there being one. Also I believe the yellow half way up is correct. If you take the lens off don't rotate the focus wheel too far, you will screw it all up. Don't ask how I know..........

Wow heavy camera. I've got a couple of questions though.

The shutter cock level seems to be on backwards. Is it possible to pry it off and turn it around?

The focus finder seems to work but it's amber display only goes up about half way. It does seem to work, I guess I need guidance though on what it should look like, though it doesn't bother me.

I've attached a photo. I apologize now for having used a digital camera to capture it.
