Hi again, thanks for previous help on getting started with my "new" Eclair ACL II...

 

I have two 400ft mags and both seem to have a faulty sensor. Not sure the word is right, what I am referring to is the springed arm that is connected to the film counter window on the side of the mag.

 

On both of them mags, the spring seem to be working backwards. As i understand it, it should push the arm towards the center, to stay on the film left on the spool as it roll away. But on my mags the spring pulls towards the exterior, away from film. So it's useless...

 

I've taken it apart down to the spring and I just can't get it... any help would be much appreciated. Thanks !!!
