Pentax 67 Light leak?

Last week i have bought a Pentax 67. The previous owner has inserted a Lomography iso 100 in it, so that was my first roll to experiment with. Now the pictures are developed i notice in almost every picture there's an overexposured strip on the right side of the pictures. Only pictures taken inside or with a long exposure are normal.

Is that an example of a light leak? Or do i have a bigger problem?

In any case, i'm planning to redo the seals

Since the image details are preserved I'd suspect a shutter problem - uneven speed at the closing end - possibly the closing curtain braking too early.

That is what I thought as well. If one is able to open the bottom (I know nothing of the 6x7) sometimes a touch of oil in the right place will free things up.

Damn that sounds like horror! I guess u 're right, it will be the closing curtain. I've bought it including 4months guarantee left (the preveous owner bought it in a shop, and I think I maybe just discovered the real reason why he was selling it after only 2 months of use) . I hope it can be fixed!
