It's a nice article, all the more so since repair articles on Kiev 4 are not easy to find on the Net.
Still those with "two left thumbs" might want to start with something easier, e.g. FEDs or the like.
My own experiences with my FED 2 are described here:

Look under "FED2: an essay".

I remember reading that article when following a link from the classic forum on pn !

And also remember enjoying a lot not only the repair info but also the 'hunt' by itself ! :) Welcome Denis !!

PS: Btw that Fed-2 is the same exact model as mine.

Hint: Keep Kurious Kats away from the workbench whilst taking apart a Kiev.

Learned the hard way.

I can imagine it... and it's painful ! :eek:

Could you find all the bits and pieces later ?
