Question Strange shutter problem on Honeywell Electric Eye 35 (Mamiya EE Merit)

I bought this camera online for only $10 and it's in beautiful condition, except that the shutter doesn't fire. I opened up the lens and what's happening is that the film wind lever doesn't move far enough to cock the shutter. Here's a very short video of the issue at hand.

I honestly have no idea on how to solve this. There's a 2mm-3mm gap between the end of the rewind lever travel and where it cocks the shutter, and I don't know where to adjust things. I did make a small adjustment to the rewind lever itself (as it has an adjustable piece on top) but it only moved the lever about 1mm forward (and this was done before the video).

HALP.

Well, I fixed it by tweaking the rewind lever just so... But now somehow my aperture control is not working.

Jeez.
