Battery check worked and the shutter does fire so I replaced the seals in it and tried to shoot a roll but only every other picture came out. It may have something to do with my makeshift battery cap delivering inconsistent power. Nikon FG with Albinar 135mm 2.8: camera does not cock, the lever moves but the film doesn't advance and the shutter doesn't cock.
The 135mm has sticky aperture blades and they do not close down. Nikon L35AF: I put batteries in it, the shutter is very difficult to press but the camera does fire and advance when you can actually get the shutter pressed. I think the contacts may need cleaning but I don't feel like diagnosing the problem.The item "Film Camera Lot NIkon FG, L35AF and Olympus XA2, Parts or Repairs As Is" is in sale since Wednesday, March 28, 2018.
