Last week I bought a 1960 Zorki 6.
It is in a pretty good condition; I overhauled the transport mechanism, which was stuck by hardened grease.
However, there is a problem with the return knob & axe, it is probably kept in lift- and restposition by a small pointed device(?) pushed into the axe in two grooves by a little spring.
This pushing device is missing on my camera.
Does anybody know what this looks like?
Now the spring itself is pushed in the grooves and gets damaged when moving the rod up & down ....
Thanks in advance

Small ball detent? Find a small ball bearing and give it a try.

Measure the diameter of the hole the spring is set in - pretty good chance it's 1 mm in diameter, but not necessarily - and get a steel ball of the correct size to fit in the hole. They sell the steel balls at www.micro-tools.com if you don't have one of the correct size.
