For proper repair including replacement parts, LTM cameras need to be sent 
to just one source; Kindermann Canada. Gerry Smith is getting close to 
retirement but he is the only Leica tech I use and his reputation for 
topnotch repair is on par with DAG. Turnaround is 2 weeks or less, from the 
time the camera is sent to him and returned to you.

Additionally, Kindermann bought up large quantities of LTM parts from Leica 
several years back.
