If you can't fix it with a hammer... you got an electrical problem

Yes, I know them already from the FB website, very helpful people and they have guided lessons (paid) that all people praise.

Phil, still the shyncro-compur is the spring-hair nightmare :)

I came across these guys as I was looking for a Compur-Rapid guide as I had one from an Isolette that wouldn't close and after fiddling with it I just couldn't figure it out.... turned out the leaf-lever was not tight and the pin had slipped from underneath.
I had meanwhile, and foolishly, disassembled most of the "top" mechanism, so a good ronsonol cleaning was given and it works just fine

PS If you want a visual guide of Compur-Rapid dissassembly and pieces, Hans Kerensky put a nice album together

and of the Synchro-Compur as well
