“The most important and time consuming work is removing the old seals. Focus on clean, clean, clean. Clean the old residue from the door channels, mirror cushion area, door hinge area and anywhere else you are replacing the seals. The finest adhesive in the world will not adhere to that sticky, gooey residue that was once a quality light seal. Proper installation will give you thousands of light tight exposures.”

Light Seal Install Guide – Ricoh KR10 Super, KR10X, XR6, XR7, XR10, XRS, Sears KS Super, Sears KSX Super film cameras

Before you do anything, please read general instructions on removing and installing light seals here.

Next, take all of the seals out of the kit and lay them out on your work area. This kit includes,

2 x 1mm – back cover channel seals, camera body
2 x 2mm – back cover channel seals, hinge side, back cover
1 x 2mm – hinge seal, camera body
1 x 3mm – back cover latch plate seal, back cover
1 x 2mm – mirror cushion

Tech Note. When centering a light seal, leave the backing attached and fold the seal in half toward the foam side. Now when you remove the backing the adhesive will be creased and centering is easy.

Door channel seals, camera body. Install the upper and lower camera body channel seals starting at the hinge side on the camera body, working from right to left. The upper channel has the counter actuation lever. You will need to install this seal as close to each side of the counter lever opening as possible, cutting as required.

Door channel seals, hinge side, back cover. Install these upper and lower back cover channel seals on the back cover, starting at the hinge side, where the channel begins and work to the right.

Hinge Seal, camera body. Install this seal on the camera body, hinge side, centering it between the top and bottom door channels.

Latch plate seal, back cover. Center this seal on the latch pin and place the seal 6.5mm from the edge of the film back as the image shows below. Firmly press in place once you have it positioned properly.

 

 


Mirror cushion.
  The mirror cushion on many of these Ricoh models are a high quality rubberized material and may not need replacement. Check for decay and replace the mirror cushion only if needed. Remember if any thing touches the focusing screen, it will likely be permanently damaged.
