                      ASSEMBLY AND ADJUSTMENT
Note:   Before assembling, disassembled parts need a careful washing and/or dusting with either a piece of cloth
        or a blower. General rules are summarized below:

        Parts equipped with rotating shafts and/or shaft bearings should be thoroughly washed with high quality
        gasoline or benzine. Especially, the parts lubricated with "L" lubricants need careful washing and drying.
        However, the pipes containing curtain springs and governor assembly should never be immersed in
        cleaning liquid for washing purposes.

        Exposed plated and anodized parts should be throughly wiped either with a brush or with a clean piece of
        cloth. When stains are found, lightly wipe off the stained parts with a clean piece of cloth soaked with
        liquid composed of ether and alcohol at the ratio of 60% and 40%.

        Painted parts need only be lightly dusted with a brush. Stains on the outer surface of black-finished
        cameras should be wiped either with a silicon cloth (similar to the one usually used for wiping glasses and
        is readily available on the market) or with the aforementioned liquid (60% ether and 40% alcohol). Wipe
        them very lightly so as not to erase the engraved white letters.

        For wiping optical elements, mixed liquid comprising 70% ether and 30% alcohol should be used. For this
        purpose, a clean piece of cotton or hemp cloth, properly washed beforehand and entirely devoid of starch,
        or a piece of soft paper is recommended.

        For wiping plastic parts (such as Fresnel and ground glass), use mixed liquid composed of 50% ether and
        50% alcohol, which gives satisfactory results.

        Stained mirror surface should be wiped very lightly with a piece of cloth soaked with mixed liquid
        composed of alcohol and ether.

        Ammeters, CdS cells, variable resistors and semi-fixed resistors should never be washed.

        It is of utmost importance to observe the right kind of lubricants, lubricating positions and lubricant
        quantity. Lubrication should be in strict accordance with the attached list of lube oils, as wrong use of oil
        will invariably result in malfunctioning of various parts and may cause defects.




                                                 23102                                                     Page    3
1. Assembly and Adjustment of Shutter and Film Transport Mechanism

   a. SHUTTER CURTAINS

    Insert the 2nd curtain pinion shaft (05062) and pinion shaft collar (05135), one after another, into the top
    mec. plate (03001), and retain (05135) with the pinion shaft collar retainer screw (05136).

    Check if the clearance between the pinion shaft collar (05135) and the top mec. plate (03001) along the shaft
    direction is adequate. The pinion shaft will not rotate smoothly without an adequate clearance. Adjustment of
    the clearance should be made with (W6) washers.

    Ease the pinion shaft collar retainer screw (05136). Shift the pinion shaft collar (05135) downward. Apply
    (L-1) lubricant between (05062) and (03001) and then fix (05135) at its original position.

    Fix the bottom shaft rest assembly (05003) to the body proper (01001) with the mec. plate retainer screw
    (03072) and screw (SM 1.7 x 2.5).

    Insert the 1st curtain pinion shaft (05061) into the top mec. plate (03001). Insert the curtain shaft collar D
    (05076) and two 1st curtain wind shafts (05066) into (05061), and fix (05066) to (05061) with two pinion
    shaft retainer screws (05102).

    Insert the 1st curtain roller (05067) and then the 2nd curtain wind shaft (05065), around which the 2nd shutter
    curtain is glued, to (05062), and fix (05065) to (05062) with one of the pinion shaft retainer screws (05102).

    Insert the curtain shaft collar C (05075) into (05061), and (05067) and (05076) into (05062), respectively.

    Install the bottom ends of (05061) and (05062) into the respective holes of (05003), assemble (03001) with
    (01001), and retain (03072) with screw (FM 1.7 x 3).

    Check if the clearance of the 1st curtain pinion shaft (05061) along the shaft direction is adequate. Adjustment
    of the clearance should be made with (W6) washers, putting them between (05003) and (05075).

    Insert two 2nd curtain rollers (05068) and one curtain shaft collar A (05073) into the 1st curtain spring shaft
    (05059) to which the 1st curtain is fixed. Insert the other curtain shaft collar A (05073) into the 2nd curtain
    spring shaft (05060) to which the 2nd curtain is fixed.

    Insert (05059) and (05060) to the respective holes of (01001), and install the curtain shaft seat (05001) in
    (05059) and (05060) through the bottom of (01001), and retain (05001) with three small screws
    (SM 1.7 x 3).

    Screw one worm wheel (05040) to (05059) and another to (05060).

    Slowly rotate (05040) counter-clockwise 2 or 3 times with a screw-driver to tension the curtain springs. Install
    the worm (05041) in the hole of (05001) and gear it with (05040). Lightly screw two set screws (Set T 1.4 x 2)
    in (05001).

    Final adjustment of the curtain spring tension should be made when adjusting the curtain travel speed
    mentioned elsewhere.




                                                  23102                                                      Page     4
23102   Page   5
b. PARALLEL ADJUSTMENT OF SHUTTER CURTAIN EDGES

 With the special tool 231K-E35-A, check if the 1st and 2nd shutter curtain edges (05023) are completely in
 parallel with each other at the center of the picture format. Also check if the edges (05023) are in parallel with
 the vertical lines of the frame of the format.
 If not in parallel, peel off either one of the 1st or 2nd curtain ribbons (05126) and (05127), and re-glue it
 correctly so that the edges are in complete parallel with each other.

 Note:      When the shutter curtains are replaced, first install the pinions (0-05061) and (0-05062) in the
            camera body, and then glue the curtain ribbons (05126 & 05127), making sure that the curtain
            edges (05023) are completely paralleled.




c. ASSEMBLY AND ADJUSTMENT OF SELECTOR GEAR PARTS

 The relative position of the shutter curtains and the bottom selector gear (0-05036) should be determined after
 assembling (0-05036) with the high speed lever (0-05005), by gearing the 2nd curtain pinion (05038) with the
 bottom selector gear (0-05036), in the wound condition of the shutter curtains as illustrated in Diagram 3. The
 relative position of the 2nd curtain edge (05023) to the vertical lines of the frame of the picture format of the
 body proper (01001) should be checked with the special tool 231K-A01, E23-A.

 Apply "L-1" lubricant on (0-05036) and (0-05062).

 Note:      When resetting the shutter curtains to the uncocked position, do it slowly.




                                               23102                                                     Page     6
Insert the top selector gear (0-05035) into the selector gear shaft bearing (05043). As illustrated in Diagram 4,
engage the top selector gear (0-05035) with the 1st curtain pinion (05038) so that the top selector gear stud
(05085) of the top selector gear (05035) makes contact with the bottom selector gear retainer plate A (05012)
of the bottom selector gear (0-05036).




Overlapping of the 1st and 2nd shutter curtain edges should be adjusted as illustrated in Diagram 5.




                                             23102                                                      Page    7
Assemble the top speed selector retainer (0-05045) and the shaft of (0-05035) with particular attention not to
change the relative position of the top selector gear (0-05035) to (0-05036), and retain it with the selector gear
shaft retainer screw (05098). This can be done easily when the shutter is not cocked. (Diagram 6)




Affix the counter dial actuator lever (0-03018) to the countor dial actuator lever shaft (03059), and the top 2nd
gear (0-03024) to the top 2nd gear shaft (03041). Set the shutter curtains in the wound condition, and affix the
stopper (03007) at a position where there is a clearance of approx. 0.2-0.3 mm between the stopper and the
projected part of the top selector gear retainer plate (05015) and where there is a clearance of approx. 0.2 mm
between the stopper and the outer periphery of (05015). After fixing (03007), turn the screw (Set F 1.7 x 4) on
the back of the body proper (01001) until it reaches the side of (03007).

Note: Do not force the screw
      (Set F 1.7 x 4) against (03007).
      Bond the screw with red
      lacquer through the back of the
      body proper (01001).




                                             23102                                                      Page     8
d. ASSEMBLY AND ADJUSTMENT OF FILM TRANSPORT MECHANISM

 First, put the sprocket collar (03058) and (W 30) onto the sprocket (03057-2) using grease G-1, the former at
 its top and the latter at its bottom. Install them in the body proper (01001). Then set (LW 13), (W 28), clutch
 ring (03095), speed dial knob retainer screw (05100) and sprocket spring (03089) onto the sprocket shaft
 (03054-2). Insert this assembled parts into the aforementioned sprocket (03057-2) through the bottom of the
 body proper (01001), and fix the bottom mech. plate (03002) onto (01001).

 Fasten the sprocket (03057-2) from its side with the sprocket retainer screw (03055-2), assuring that the tip of
 the screw go right into the long slot of (03095).

 While pushing the sprocket shaft (03054-2) from its bottom, rotate (03057-2) with your fingertip to check if it
 functions smoothly. Then push (03054-2) again from its bottom and rotate (03057-2) several times with your
 finger, after which lift your finger to check if (03054-2) remains recessed by dint of the functioning of the
 clutch but satisfactorily reverts itself to its original position once (03057-2) is again rotated.

 Assemble the spool (03009), top take-up spool brim (03010) and bottom take-up spool brim (03011) in one
 body, and install it in the spool chamber of the body proper (01001). Drop the wind-up shaft (03042) into the
 body proper (01001) through its upper hole and affix the wind-up shaft bearing (03043) to the body proper
 (01001) with small screw (SM 1.7 x 3.5) through the top mec. plate (03001).

 With the special tool 231 K-C 27-A, screw the bottom main gear (03027) clockwise onto the wind-up shaft
 (03042) through the bottom of (01001). When doing so, see to it that the wind-up shaft (03042) is retained
 intact with the special tool 231 K-C 27-A so that it will not rotate.

 While holding (03027) steadily with the
 special tool 231 K-C 26-A, fasten the top
 main gear (03026), turning it clockwise
 with the special tool 231 K-C 23-A.

 Note: Do not under any circumstances
       turn and fasten the bottom main
       gear (03027).




                                              23102                                                     Page       9
 Slightly rotate the top main gear retainer screw (03044) clockwise with a screwdriver, and ease the force of
 your driver-holding hand, at which determine if the bottom main gear (03026) will revert itself steadily, say,
 by 2 or 3 cogs of the gear.

 As explained in paragraph......of the Disassembly section, when the wind-up shaft parts are replaced, adjust
 the torque of the spool with (W 17) washers by carefully comparing it with the torque of the spooi of another
 Spotrnatic in good working order.

e. ASSEMBLY AND ADJUSTMENT OF INTERMEDIATE GEAR PARTS

 Note Lubricate the intermediate gear shaft (05048) very slightly. If oiled excessively, it will invariably result
      in irregularity of the shutter speed. Do not lubricate the top intermediate gear (05033) or the bottom
      intermediate gear (05034).




 Set the shutter curtain in the wound condition with the special tool 231 K-E 15-A. Turn the top main gear
 retainer screw (03044) with a screwdriver to position the teeth of the counter actuator dial (03021) as
 illustrated in Diagram 10.




 Paying attention not to move the wind-up shaft (03042), assemble the bottom intermediate gear (05034) with
 (05048) so that the square hole of (05034) will fit the square groove of the intermediate gear shaft (05048),
 and the top 3rd gear (C 25) will engage with (05034) and the top main gear (C 26).

 Turn the non-return arm (03008) clockwise with the tip of tweezers, and check if (03008) is in contact with the
 side of the bottom part of the bottom intermediate gear (05034).




                                              23102                                                      Page 10
By holding the bottom intermediate gear (05034) to prevent it from floating, turn the top main gear retainer
screw (03044) clockwise with a screw-driver until the tip of the non-return arm (03008) drops into the bottom
groove of the bottom intermediate gear (05034).




When the force of the screwdriver is eased, the bottom intermediate gear (05034) slightly revolves clockwise
with the reversing strength of the wind-up shaft (03042) and stops when it hits the non-return arm (03008).

Carefully install the spill (05030) in the square hole of the bottom intermediate gear
(05034).

Note: Be careful not to install the spill upside down.

Slowly press the spill with the tip of tweezers to check if the spill goes up and down smoothly with the tension
of the spill spring (05031). Then install the top intermediate gear (05033), placing it on (05034).




                                             23102                                                     Page 11
If the groove of (05033), after installation, cannot be properly positioned even though the engaging position of
the gear is changed, the groove of (05033) needs adjustment by filing with a fine file.




Place the spill recepctacle plate (05032) on the top intermediate gear (05033), and screw the intermediate gear
retainer screw (05092-1) onto the intermediate gear shaft (05048).

Pressing down the spill (05030) with the tip of tweezers, turn the 1st curtain checker arm (05008) counter-
clockwise as viewed from the top of the body proper, and release the shutter.

Check if the spiil (05030) reverts itself to its original position when the force on the spill (05030) is slowly
eased. Cock the shutter again, and repeat this to determine if the spill (05030) moves up and down smoothly.




                                             23102                                                      Page 12
f. ASSEMBLY AND ADJUSTMENT OF SELECTOR GEAR MECHANISM

 (1)   Assembly of high Speed Lever Parts

       After cocking the shutter, fix the bulb lever (05007) to the bulb lever shaft (05050). If the tip of the
       bulb lever (05007) hits the selector gear bottom retainer plate (05012), grind the tip of (05007) with a
       grindstone.




       Assemble the high speed lever (0-05005) with the bulb lever (05007), and insert them again into
       (05050). Hook the high speed lever spring (05120) on the indicator seat (05104) and screw the bulb
       lever nut (05103) onto (05050). Check with the tip of tweezers if both parts (0-05005 & 05007) move
       smoothly.

 (2)   Assembly and Adjustment of Shutter Rod

       Assemble the shutter rod spring (05117-1) and the shutter rod (05051) which is calked to the release
       plate (05004). Insert the shutter rod (05051) into the hole of (03001) through the top of (01001) and
       also into the lower hole of (01001). At the same time, arrange the intermediate gear retainer screw
       (05092) to get into the hole of (05004).

       Fix an (LW 10) washer to the lower part of (05051) through the bottom part of (01001). From the front
       of (05051), .fasten the shutter actuator plate (05022) with two shutter actuator plate retainer serews
       (05088).

       Adjustment of (05022) should be made after the mirror housing has been assembled into the body
       proper (01001). The difference in height between the selector gear retainer plate B (05013) and the
       bulb lever (05007) must not exceed 1/3 of the thickness of the plate (05013).

       When the 1st curtain checker arm (05008) is released after cocking the shutter, (05013) slightly rotates
       and stops by colliding against the bulb lever (05007). If the bulb lever (05007) is slowly turned
       counter-clockwise with the tip of tweezers, it should be removed smoothly from (05013).

 Note: Remember to prevent the lubricant on the high speed lever (05005) from spreading over the gear parts.

 (3)   Assembly and Adjustment of Bounce Stopper Mechanism

       First, temporarily fasten the bounce stopper adjust screw (05109) to the back of the body proper.
       Ratain the bounce stopper lever (05010) together with (W 31) with the bounce stopper screw (05101).
       The tip of the arm (05010) should not have such up-and-down clearance as to get loose from the head
       of (05109). If necessary, adjust the clearance with (W 27) washers.




                                             23102                                                     Page 13
      (05010) should not touch the upper part of the top selector gear (05035).




(4)   Assembly and Adjustment of the "cocked" Indicator

      The "cocked" indicator (05029) must be placed between the high speed cam (05219 or 05319) and the
      top selector gear retainer plate (05015). Adjustment in this connection should be made by properly
      bending (05029) with tweezers. Contact of (05029) with either (05019) or (05015) results in
      irregularity of shutter speeds.




(5)   Assembly and Adjustment of Speed Selector Disc

      Affix the bulb cam (05021) and the pallet release cam (05057) to the slow speed cam (05020) with two
      screws (SM 1.4 x 2.0).

      Insert (05057) into the lower part of the speed selector disc shaft (05042--2) of the shutter rest
      (05002), the speed selector disc (05058--2) through its upper part, and fasten them with two screws
      (REM 1.7 x 3.5).




                                           23102                                                   Page 14
(6)   Assembly of Shutter Rest Plate

      Cock the shutter. Assemble the governor actuator rod spring (06015) and the governor actuator rod
      (06008), and insert them to the hole of the bottom shaft rest (05003).

      Assemble the pallet release rod (06009), the pallet release lever collar (06010) and the pallet release
      lever top B (06006), and insert them into the hole of the bottom shaft rest (05005) as in the case of
      (06008). Leave the screw (Set T 1.4 x 2.5) of (06010) loosened.




      Apply a small quantity of "L-1 " lubricant in the hole of the pallet release cam (05057) and on the high
      speed cam shaft (05047). Fix the long hole of the high speed cam (05019) onto the selector pin
      (05078). Without moving the high speed cam shaft (05047), match the hole of the pallet release cam
      (05057) of (05002) with (05047), and then place (05002) on the shutter rest column (03033) and
      (01001). At the same time, insert the upper end of the governor actuator rod (06008) into the hole of
      the bottom slow speed lever (06002), and then put the upper end of the pallet release rod (06009) into
      the hole of (05002).

      Fasten (05002) to the body proper (01001) with two screws (SM 1.7 x 3.0), and fix (05002) to the
      shutter rest column (03033) with the shutter rest retainer screw (05130).

      Move the high speed cam (05019) up and down with tweezers. Adjust the tolerance for this up-and-
      down movement between 0.2 mm and 0.3 mm by placing washers (W 6) onto the high speed cam shaft
      (05047).




                                            23102                                                     Page 15
      Two types of the high speed cam, (05219) and (05319), are available for critical adjustment of the
      shutter speed. Refer to Chapter 5, b. for use of these two cams.




      Apply "L-1" lubricant between (06008) and (06009); and between (05002), (05003) and (06002).

(7)   Assembly and Adjustment of Slow Speed Governor.

      Match the groove of the fan-shaped gear (07009) of the slow speed governor (0-07001) with the
      governor actuator stud (07011), and affix (0-07001) to the body proper (01001) with two screws (FM
      1.4 x 2.0). Apply a small quantity of "L-4" lube between (06011) and (07009). Cock the shutter at 1/15
      or 1/30 sec.




      Push the pallet switch lever (07004) in front of the slow speed governor to the right as viewed from the
      body front. When (G 04) is hit with the pallet release lever bottom (06007), it moves to the right, and
      the pallet (07003) is separated from the star wheel (07008). At this point, turn (06006) and (06010)
      clockwise, and the tip of (06006) hits the protruded part of (05057). Pressing down the tip of (06006)
      onto (05057), fasten it with two set screws (Set 1. 1.4 x 2.5).

      Release the shutter at a speed slower than 1/30 sec. When the fan-shaped gear returns, (07003) must
      separate itself completely from (07008).




                                           23102                                                     Page 16
If set screws (Set T. 1.4 `x 2.5) are not properly fastened, (07003) may. hit (07008). Bond the set screw
(Set T. 1.4 x 2.5) with Screw Lock bond.




                                      23102                                                    Page 17
g. ASSEMBLY AND ADJUSTMENT OF COUNTER DIAL MECHANISM

 Insert the counter dial coupler lever shaft (03062) into the counter dial coupler lever (03017) to which fix
 washer (W 8), counter dial ratchet (03219, 03319 or 03419), counter dial ratchet spring (03082) and counter
 dial coupler lever collar (03063), in this order.

 Holding down (03063) with a screw-driver, hook (03082) on the counter dial ratchet stud (03077) of (03219,
 03319 or 03419) with tweezers.

 With the tip of tweezers, rotate (03017). It should move smoothly. Keep holding down (03063), slowly rotate
 (03044) clockwise with another screw-driver, and one of the two cogs of the counter dial actuator (03021)
 starts gearing with the counter dial 1st gear (03030).




 It is important that the two gears engage smoothly. If the gearing of the cogs is unsatisfactory, replace counter
 dial ratchet with a new one with proper size. For adjusting purposes, counter dial ratchet is available in three
 different sizes: (03219), (03319) and (03419).




 While still holding down (03063), install the counter dial actuator lever collar (03060) and the counter dial
 actuator lever spring (03083) on the counter dial actuator lever shaft (03059). For easier installation, assemble
 (03059) and (03083) together before hand. Place the end of (03083) into a small concave inside the body
 proper.




                                              23102                                                      Page 18
 Slowly ease the force of the screwdriver holding down (03063). Do not free the screwdriver suddenly, or the
 parts will flip up with the tension of the counter ratchet spring (03082).

 Insert the rapid wind lever shaft (03039) into the counter dial 3rd gear (03032), and place this assembly on the
 counter dial actuator lever shaft (C 59), the counter dial coupler lever shaft (03062) and the rapid wind lever
 shaft seat (03064), and retain them with one rapid wind lever retainer screw (03073) and two small screws
 (SM 1.7 x 3.5).

 With tweezers, turn the tip of (03032), protruding from the upper end of (03039), counter-clockwise as far as
 it goes. While checking through the hole of (03039) the proper gearing condition of the cogs of (03032) with
 the counter dial 2nd gear (03031), slowly insert the edge of the back-cover into the groove of the body proper.
 If the cogs are not gearing smoothly with (03031),
 replace (03019) with one of a different size for re-
 adjustment. After replacement of (03019), check
 again if (03021) engages properly with (03030).

 Cock the shutter by turning (03039) counter-
 clockwise with the special tool 231K-C22-A.

 Viewing through the hole of (03039), check if the
 engaged (03031) and (03032) advance by one
 notch with each shutter cocking. This confirms
 whether the counter dial travels by one notch with
 each shutter cocking.

h. ASSEMBLY AND ADJUSTMENT OF RAPID
   WIND LEVER SEAT

 The top 1st gear (03022) requires no adjustment
 for positioning. Simply install it on (03039), and
 engage it with the top 2nd gear (03024).

 Fix the spring (03080) and two rapid wind ratchet springs (03084) to the rapid wind lever shaft (03034) in
 advance. Wind the spring (03080) around (03034), and hold it with your fingers. If (03084) is left simply
 hooked on the wind-up ratchet (03005), (03005) will invariably start turning towards the centre of (03034). To
 prevent this, (03005) must be positioned as illustrated in Diagram 26.

 Slowly insert (03039) into (03034) and put one end of
 (03080) onto the strap hook retainer screw (01054).
 Hold (03034) with your finger to prevent its reverse
 rotation with the tension of (03080). Insert (03084) into
 the groove of (03005). (03005) automatically engages
 with the wind-up ratchet wheel (03023) with the spring
 tension. When one tip of (03005) is engaged with
 (03023), the other tip should be between the cogs of
 (03023). This permits many sectional cockings for film
 advance and shutter cocking. See that the outside of
 (03080) is slightly in contact with the inside of the body
 proper when the notch "A" at the upper part of (03034)
 is positioned towards the lever stopper (03004) as
 illustrated in Diagram 27.


                                               23102                                                   Page 19
    Install the rapid wind lever (03003) onto (03034) and fasten it with the special tool 231 K-C 03-A.

    When (03003) is cocked with one single stroke, the part "B" of (03034) must not hit (03004), however, it may
    hit (03034) in sectional cocking.




2. Mirror Housing

  a. POINTS TO BE BORNE IN MIND WHEN MAKING ADJUSTMENT

    Assembly of the mirror housing is comparatively easy. Consequently, only the points that should be borne in
    mind when fixing and/or adjusting the parts are summarized below:

    (1) When bonding the ground glass frame B (02109) to the mirror housing (02002), see to it that it is tightly
        and securely bonded with Pliobond on the shelf of the mirror housing (02002). If incorrectly bonded it
        may float or drift from the shelf and cause focus error.




                                                23102                                                     Page 20
(2) When fixing the mirror seat assembly (0-02009) to the mirror housing (02002), the "A" part of the hinge
    cover (02011) as shown in the following diagram should not protrude or sink itself from the back of
    (02002), namely, the "B" part as illustrated in diagram 29, as the shutter curtains may jam with the "A"
    part. Adjust (02011) correctly with pliers, where required.




(3) When replacing the mirror seat assembly (0-02009) with a new one, check to see whether the mirror seat
    (02009) is in a twisted condition when it is down. When found twisted, adjust to keep it in a proper
    shape with your finger.

(4) The mirror seat rest (02043) constitutes a cam. It is adjusted to maintain 45
