was looking for an adapter to use Zuiko's on a Canon Eos.
Ever been to The Olympus School? Here it is!
M-1 information page - Mark Dapoz. This page is a documentary about the Olympus M-1. Information has been gathered as part of my M-1 restoration project.
Dapoz has gathered almost all OM & Zuiko manuals and service diagrams. I hope you have some kind of broadband, as these are all hefty pdf's. There is a small repair Faq. (This is mostly the ESIF-info.)

Olympus OM-1 Aerial Camera Housing for Steve Ogles WATERSHOT INC. The remote control OM housing was mounted on the end of removable 4130 steel tube mounts. These were bolted onto the wing spar jig fixtures of the aircraft wings. Designed for POV shots of the aircraft in flight against various backdrops. This is a zero-control housing using the Zuiko 21mm lens.
Leather Covers for Olympus OM Cameras. M. Sparks. Natural Cobra skin; natural lizard skin; red snakeskin. They recently introduced die-cut baseplates: "Scratch-Pads" to protect your Olympus OM1-4. Nice!
Basic shutter job on an OM1 - Robert Ian Axford. This particular body came in with a sticky shutter at 1/8th of a second. The slow speed unit is hidden out of the way underneath the floor of the mirror box. The original m39 Leicas also have their escapements down here and this is just one of the several things that Maitani (and so many others) lifted from the design of those classics.
Lavishly documented with pictures; a bit sparse on the theoretics of the job.
On lubing: Flooding these mechanisms with solvent full of graphite powder is quite insane and should never be done outside of battle-field conditions. ;-)
He also finds a bug in the design of this early OM1 - I think he may be right.
Favorite Classics - Henry Taber and Kar Yan Mak maintain a series of instruction and repair manuals here.
Replacing the backfoam - John Hermanson of Camtech. (He also sells the foam sealing.)
