Any Yashica Electro 35 owner here?

recently I have purchased the Yashica Electro 35 GSN rangefinder in really mint state, with POD replaced, the only issue I have is the rangefinder. When you turn your focus ring to infinity, is your rangefinder also focused to infinity? Because mine is not, itís slightly behind. I need to know this in order to align the rangefinder. There is only one screw under the hot shoe for horizontal alignment, right? When I align the RF to infinity, will it be aligned properly through the entire lens focus range?
Thank you very much.

That should do the trick. Though it doesn't hurt to check if the distance scale matches the RF image at close range.
