How to adjust the Xpan/TX-1 RF

Here:
http://photo.net/leica-rangefinders-forum/008zw6

I just received a perfect condition Fuji TX-1, only thing is the RF was off vertically. The ebay seller had mentioned it had no issues, and perhaps this was the case when he packed it up. The condition of the shipping box suggested it wasn't handled gently in transit...

Using the instructions above, and the moon as the infinity target, I was able to adjust it in about 15 minutes. 10 of those used up for removing the loctite on the screws. Kinda cool saving $200 and 3-4 weeks if I had sent it out.

I just adjusted another Xpan in about 5 minutes.
Cannot believe shops are charging $200 for this service..

Bless the internet for providing the how to information!

Clearly shares an RF designer with the Hexar. Same adjuster.

The Xpan, Konica RF and Contax G1/G2 all look very very similar to me when you look at the construction, including materials used.
