New to me Electro 35 GSN
I was given a Yashica Electro 35 GSN today that is in great shape. The meter appears responsive, the shutter works, aperture moves smoothly and freely, and even has a nice thump (indicating the pad of death is in decent shape) on winding/cocking.
If I press the shutter release just far enough down to trip the shutter, everything works great. However, if I push the shutter release all the way down (past the point where the shutter releases and the shutter release rod latch engages), the shutter will close again before releasing the shutter release button in bulb mode or will close prematurely on a longer exposure. The movement between the point that the shutter releases and the bottom of the shutter button travel is very small.
It seems like being able to adjust the lower boundary of the shutter release travel would stop this from happening, but I can't figure out if it's possible to adjust how far down the shutter release rod can travel. I've looked at the service manual and still don't see where the adjustment would happen. I'm not sure if the transport release adjustment would make a difference.
Has anyone had a similar issue or have any insight into how this issue may be fixed?
