A fellow Super-8 fan here. I've recently dug up an old Canon Auto Zoom 318M and gave the unit a bit of a clean up - cleaned inside the battery compartment, resoldered some weak joins etc and so forth, anyway, the camera is in what I think is good opperating condition it seems, motor runs nicely, zoom works (can be seen from outside the lens) except for the view finder. I believe the mirror had been dislodged long before I got my hands on it. It was ratteling around but was able to get it out safely when I took one side panel off (It was just floating were the trigger is).
What I'm looking for is a repair manual or even a direction to a site if anyone has a repair or disasembly detailed. I can't for the life of me remove the left hand side cover (battery compartment side), hoping that I will be able to re-fit the dislodged mirror for the viewfinder to get this little beauty operational again.
It seems useable as it is, however I wouldn't want to waste valuable film by just guessing.
Any help would be much appreciated.
