Howdy all, long time reader first time poster.
I recently bought a Graflex Graphic View II in great shape aside from a few minor details:
-The back (non-Graflok) has some white powdery corrosion that seems to scrape off fairly easy. Any tips on cleaning that off without doing any damage? Also seems that the velvet lining on is worn away, the problem is it's completely gone so I have no idea where/what I'm replacing exactly and the service manual doesn't make this terribly clear either. Anyone have a picture of theirs I can go off of?
-The bushings that fit between the front and rear tilt knobs and control arms are all placed in different orders, on one side of the camera they are between the knobs and the control arms, on the other they're between the control arm and the front/rear standards. In what order should these actually be assembled? Once again, the repair manual is very vague about this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm very eager to get it all fixed up and ready to shoot.
