Default Fujica Half


I just picked up a Fujica Half at a garage sale, but I'm not sure what
sort of condition it's in. I haven't tried loading any film yet, since a
roll of film would cost about as much as the camera. It looks like the
meter might not work, and if I press the shutter release button, nothing
happens. I figure the shutter might only cock when the film is wound, but
I can't pull the film advance lever all the way out. Manually turning the
film sprocket wheel and the film take-up spool doesn't help.

I'm hoping the issue is just that nothing will happen until the film trips
or depresses something, and I might go buy a cheap roll today just to see.
But if anyone has any advice, I'd really appreciate it. If it turns out to
be broken, is it feasible for a novice to take this camera apart?

Thanks a lot,
