Well... living here sooner or later this time should come... I got a Zorki 1 (export version), subtype e.
Nice serial number, double inscription at the top plate means for export outside URSS, normally with better quality controls.
Everything is in order, nice speeds (not accurate, halved), curtains intact and Industar-22 in good conditions.
Lets open and clean it!
This is the top plate without the body and shutter, when I opened I found parts of films, looks pretty dirty...
Lets begin with the rewind film release, sorry, not well focused, its that cute cylinder next to the release gear.
Its loosened with that screw at the handle for rewind (B)
Below that screw
Removing the handle we find this, don't loose the washer, allows a tight movement without scratching the plate.
Now we remove the shutter release button with the film guide roll, first unscrew this little one
The top part its as the old fashion way
The gear that connects the film winder with the release and film guide gears

We can see where it goes attached, warning! there is an spring inside that is used to let the gear to come back to rest position after the film release handle comes back to the right. That spring is attached with that screw inside that tube.
Film counter and winders, remove that one in order to loose everything...
Unscrew by hand (its tight!)
Using this as support
Film counter and
