All you need for shutter CLA:
extra fine powdered graphite http://www.agscompany.com/lubricants/homehardware/183
light weight oil http://www.triflowlubricants.com/Tri...Lubricant.html
white lithium grease http://www.amazon.com/Permatex-80345.../dp/B000HBNV58
degreaser that leaves no residue and is safe to use on rubber and plastics http://www.amazon.com/CRC-Electrical.../dp/B003NTQCA2
3in1 oil is vegetable base and will dry out quickly and leave a sticky residue.
Water Disperant 40 contains a light weight vegetable based oil and leaves a sticky residue.
Lighter fluid leaves an oily residue.
Naphtha will damage plastic and rubber components used in shutters made form the 1940's and newer.
I rub the graphite into the aperture and shutter blades and their pivot pins with a q tip then remove any cotton fibers.
The #1 shutter blade has a special pin for the #6 capping blade, it will be different from the other blades.
Shutter speed testing, the last posts are the most up to date. I put a piece of dark red lighting gel equivalent to a #25 red filter over the sensor and use a 2 AA cell mini mag set to spot at 2 inches for tests.
Shutter blade starting point is adjacent to the release lever and goes clockwise as viewed from the front of the shutter. The photo below is inaccurate, I am unable to delete it. The correct on is above.
