Pinholes can be spotted with some fabric paint as a tempory measure. A full overhaul here with new shutter curtains undertaken by a specialist is 35+postage. Not bank breaking

The Biotar is a good lens, the 28mm f3.5 Angenieux alone is probably worth 5 times what you paid. (The 135 is worthless though!)
