Step 5: Results
Once you have left the camera overnight to dry, it should function as normal. Test it out by dry firing (without film) a few times at all stepped shutter speeds. Even without a shutter speed tester, you should get a good idea if your camera is firing accurately.
If you are satisfied that your camera is working correctly, run a test roll of film through the body (with a lens attached) and examine the exposure. If all looks good, declare your camera fixed and move on with your life.
For the paranoid out there, you can check the shutter blades for any goo reemergence whenever you change film. Remember, you are managing the problem, not solving it! If you see the black goo reemerge, follow the cleaning procedure outlined here. Every camera body that I have treated has lasted many years and no goo has come back...you could say they are in remission!
One note about the video below. The shutter speed of the camera is so fast, the shutter speed of the video camera could not capture the firing of the shutter, so it looks intermittent. I can assure you that the shutter fired on all speeds.
Enjoy your fully functional, cheap, and low tar camera!
