Basic Installation Guidelines

Take all of the seals for this 7 piece Fujica kit and lay them out on your work area.

Lower channel seal, back cover – 1 x 1mm
Upper channel seal, back cover – 1 x 1mm
Upper latch plate seal, camera body, latch end – 1 x 1mm
Lower latch plate seal, camera body, latch end – 1 x 1mm
Back cover latch plate seal – 1 x 2mm
Hinge seal, back cover – 1 x 1mm
Mirror cushion – 1 x 2mm

I recommend beginners start with the shorter pieces first.

Door channel seals, back cover. Install the 1mm top/bottom channel seals on the body, starting on the right, at the hinge end working left towards the latch side.

Latch Plate seal, back cover. Install this seal on the back cover, just below the round latch, centering the seal between the upper and lower channels in the back cover.

Tech Note, fold the seal carefully to easily locate the center of the seal.

Install the latch plate seals, latch end, camera body.  The shorter seal is installed above the door latch hook, the longer seal below the latch hook.

Hinge seal, camera body.  Install this seal on the back cover, hinge side, centering the seal between the upper and lower channels in the back cover.

Mirror cushion.  Now, with the utmost care, remove the old and install the new mirror cushion.  Remember if anything touches the focusing screen, it will likely be permanently damaged.
