Anyone disassemble a M42 SMC Takumar 85-210 4.5?

I have a M42 SMC Takumar 85-210 4.5. IQ is great, but there is some looseness on the lens itself. The aperture dial is hard to turn & moves a little up & down as well.

I know there is Eric, but I wanted to see if anyone has worked on them before. I've done some full breakdowns on the primes, but this one looks like its going to need some more work then what I've done before. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I too have 2 of these lenses, One Mint The other not so mint. I need to take it apart all the way down to each element and clean it. Fungus is present, and I need to get in there soon. I have taken apart many primes, ( more then a few Takumar's). I will explore this lens and let you know what I find. Talk soon AKf

Thanks..
I've been hoping someone would sooner or later give it a go. Having two will help somewhat. I hope you take some pictures as well taking it apart & back. We need to get a database going of some of these old lenses. Some are pretty easy to work on, but being the 1st to give it a go is not what I'm good at doing.
