Default Aldis uno f7.7 anastigmat lens,

Has anyone stripped and cleaned a ALDIS UNO F7.7 ANASTIGMAT LENS, on the speed selection dial, it has LUCOS 2, printed on it.
It has a whole 3 speeds, 25, 50, 100. B and T.
The diaphragm work well and has no oil on the blades.
Now the issue I have with it is the shutter mechanism is worn and not engaging.
Has anyone know how to separate the two halves which form the body so I can access the shutter mechanism.
I have stripped everything off of the lens but have come to a complete stop. the two halve seem seized together.
I have soaked them in RP7 but no cookie.
The glass is in excellent condition and with the shutter fixed and all the brass polished this should be a very mice landscape lens for my 4*5 view camera.

Default Thanks, Collas

The half diagram gives me a idea on separating the body to access the shutter mechanism,
