of the disassembly is pretty self-explanatory, where there are any
items to keep an eye on I’ll detail it. I have the lock levers in
the locked position for the following images. First take off the cap
screw any spacer. On my earlier Kiev’s there is a cylinder spacer
under the cap screw.
When you take off the lock plate notice
the position of the notch highlighted in blue and see how it
corresponds with a notch on the base of the swivel lever assembly in
red. This is really the main area to keep an eye on when you tighten
the cap screw.
Notice the wavy spring washer, blue arrow, this
pulls the lock levers in flush to the camera body.
Here’s another place to watch. The wavy
spring washer has two flat areas in red and when mated to the lock
lever base, should align with two flat cuts shown by blue arrows.
Clean up the parts and reassemble in reverse order making note of
any alignment and you should be good.
