Tower 19 aka Olympus Ace E light seals

  1. Over thanksgiving I made my pilgrimage to the local thrift stores near my daughter's house. In one I found a Tower 19
    aka Olympus Ace E camera with the 45mm f2.8 lens. Appears to be fully functional. Compared the selenium meter
    to my OM 1n and they appear to read the same. Though to replace the seals. Using a toothpick I expected to come
    up with the gummy remains of foam. Instead appeared a few black fibres, so I assume this uses felt light seals. How
    often do felt seals need replacement? Should I stick to felt or use foam?
