Thanks, but the shutter is actually clean as a whistle and on-speed now. Before, I had nothing. Now I have accuracy from 5-10% up to 100. There is no 400, and I have to put it on 400 to get 200. but before, 400 was 130, 100 was 65, 1/2 was .702, and 1 second was .800. The only speed that worked was 1/50, which was dead-on, and I left it alone.
On top of that, the front lens element was so full of cleaning marks that it was worthless. I liberated a beautiful front element out of another 135 Optar where somebody had shattered element #2.
Now I have something I can use with confidence.
I don't give up. I can repair ANYTHING.
