Auto-Takumar 35mm 3.5 Rebuild

ok here is a quick guide on how to rebuild this 55 yr old Lens,as I couldn't find any other guide out there on this particular Lens. The main reason I am putting this up is so that if anyone attempts this they will understand that it is very important to get the helical back to the same spot,as there is no focus adjustment on the focus collar.
