My XL rangefinder mirror fell off so I took off the rangefinder cover and carefully re-glued the mirror. (Not carefully enough!?). Now the lens barrel focuses out at infinity for everything greater than about 10 feet away. In other words the rangefinder works but it's way off (seems a little better for things >5 ft. away. Any suggestions what I may have done or how to fix this. I have a Planar 80mm lens.
Thanks!

I don't know jack about these camera's or else I would just translate the manual's assembly/calibration instructions which I just checked and I have.
Now, I do not have a place to post them or an email to send them to, but will scan the two pages into medium sized jpeg or tiff files when I do.

Would you happen to still have the instructions for the XL rangefinder and if so, could I trouble you for a JPEG copy. Your help would be much appreciated. W4047
