I have an Eumig 16c from eBay.  It came with bent lens turret arms, a faulty film speed selector dial a 

an interior detent arm that prevents lens selection when the main lens is in any other position except

infinity focus.  Well, (patting myself on the back) I disassembled it, did lots of cleaning lubrication, straightened all the bent items, put the lenses back in their proper seats and it is now purring loudly.

I made a test film for focus, iris operation and speed. Now I will have to weight for the film to come back

You didn’t go as far as gears and spring, did you? If yes, you could have lubricated the claw mechanism with a little oil on the felt pads and on the gear train.

Gear and spring.  I have not yet tackled that area yet, but I expect to.  It seems lubrication could help reduce noise and increase operational efficiency. Thanks.  Next project will be an Eumig C3 8mm. It makes squeeky noises.
