SNIP -- 
Jim and others,

Clarification -- The advice was not from a local dealer, but from a
national independent camera repair facility.

As an additional point of information, Theo Kisselbach's book, "The
Leica CL" (Hove Camera Foto Book, Eng. ed. 1977), ISBN 0 85242 570 8, is
a good substitute for the CL instruction booklet.  That book
occasionally may be obtained on the "Net" or from used book sellers.

Best regards.
