Heard something rattling around inside my SSG when installing a Graflex 2.25" by 2.75" black paper mask in the back. Removed the Graflok back, viewfinder and lensboard. Gently shook the SSG in various orientations. That piece finally fell out.

2.125" long, 0.5" wide and about .025" thick. Shiny stainless steel in appearance with rounded corners. One side clear but the other side has dried glue or sealer smeared about 1/8th inch wide around its edge.

Any ideas what it might be?

Thanks in advance.

36153-P1 Cover, Rangefinder housing. Appears to go on the sub housing assembly (basic rangefinder frame) under the central portion of the movable mirror assembly. Has a foot note recommending not to remove the part but send the rangefinder in for exchange.

That part has fallen out of every Super I've had and has no apparent affect on camera or rangefinder operation.

Thanks for the info.

Is there an on-line service manual for the 4x5 Super Speed Graphic so I can see diagrams of the insides of one?
