I've gotten used to mine now and it's a pleasure to use. Really versatile, from candids to landscapes and only a little more trouble than 35mm.
Glad to hear you were able to clean the lens and aperture blades. I had mne CLA'd and the exposures are always spot on. I think the build quality on the Ikoflex is pretty darn high. Reliability is a huge plus.
Just in case you might be interested too, since filters for this camera are hard to find I ordered a 35.5mm to 49mm filter adapter since I already have a bunch of filters.
