Focus problem on Makinon lens

Hi all,

I'm new here although been watching the forums for some time.

I've recently purchased a faulty Makinon lens, 28mm, 1:2.8 gor a few quid off ebay. It had a fault with the aperture which I have managed to fix. However it doesnt appear to focus properly which I am a little baffled by...

This is the lens with the focus ring off. Does any one know how this lens focuses? I've pulled apart a few lenses before and fixed them no problem but never dealt with focusing problems before, the focus ring just appears to turn freely around the rest of the lens, there is nothing there for it to move in order for it to focus.

Here's a picture from inside the ring:

Can anyone help?
