Hello again Qiao. "Leica Camera Repair Handbook" by Thomas Tomosy has 9
pages specifically on the Leicaflex & SL. Plus of course a lot of general
information and coverage of other cameras. I got it (my edition 1999) just
to understand more about the construction of the RF cameras and accessories.
It is entirely a practical work book. You can get it from Amazon discounted
For tools, one source is I've got a lot of specialist items
from them in the past. Check freight costs for your location before you

I did find copies of Leicaflex Standard repair manual for sale. Will
inquire their publication dates before ordering.

The meter cell looks to be ribbed.

I will also need to purchase tools to "repair" my Leicaflex. Would you
have any recommendations?
