I now have repaired some pre-spotmatic bodies, but this Asahiflex cause me some difficulties... The first porblem is to find where I can tune the curtain speed, because they are a bit too slow, especially at slow speeds. I put some lubricant on rods, but as I expected, it was not enough. Any thoughs, with these pictures ?
