You might be able to ameliorate the problem with tensioning or slacking the offending shutter curtain, but that is a slippery slope, as you have to be sure the shutter capping is the real problem and not mechanical interference of a curtain or a loose curtain tape.

You also need to measure curtain running time, hard to to on cameras that have no open back, so a pro CLA is the best way to go, worth it for a valuable camera like a IIIf and needed on a 65 year old camera, if you plan to use it.
