OK so I have been playing with the Babies a lot lately and I was running one of my Pathex ones. It is an original Model C with the single pin claw. It still runs and cranks like a dream but it has begun stopping 2 - 3 frames beyond the notch and I can't figure out what dictates this. It seems it would be a simple adjustment since the stop is just occurring 2 frames late.... Anyone ever have this problem or have an idea on where to look for a fix?

haven't had the problem, but look at the little arm that feels for the notch and engages the clutch for the pull down until it walk across the reset screw (about 15 frames?) Maybe it's spring tension or a little oil that's gotten too old and turned to gunk.
