SOURCE: How do I thread the film through an 8mm B&H Projector

http://www.folkstreams.net/vafp/stream.php?id=97

It's about four and a half minutes long, and shows how to clean the various components that need cleaning beforehand as well as how to thread the projector.

However, I wish you good bloody luck on finding a bulb, if you don't have one that still works. From the look of the unit, it uses a DAR bulb, which was delisted (read: went out of production) thirty years ago. You can sometimes find new old-stock (NOS) DAR bulbs on eBay, but expect to pay $30 to $35 apiece plus shipping for them.

Hi
most of the projectors handle 2 different versions of 8 mm films.. and ..
in accordance with this feature again most of the projectors have a switch that can run either of the version..So,your projector should have a switch to handle either of the standards.8 mm film is slower than super 8 ..You must have recorded super 8mm and now triying to play on 8 mm..If I knew your movie camera model I can tell the which one is.As far as I have checked your projector can only hande and not capable
Sorry about it.you must find another projector that can run your super 8 mm..just in case if you need a user manual pls visit the link below..

Hope this helps..if not pls ask me more..
Regards

If the backside of the arm opposite the the pin holding the reel has a screw [possibly plastic] loosen it 1/2 turn at a time. First put a film reel on the pin to check each adjustment buy putting the empty reel with your finger.

How do I stop my Dad's Bell & Howell projector from "skipping" while running a film, model L, design 122.


For a projector to run right, the motor has gear teeth in it that engage with the hollow points on the film itself. The motor has to turn at a steady speed with no friction or hesitation. It is possible the motor on the inside of the projector needs to be oiled or cleaned out...or rebuilt at worse.
There is also the motor that pulls the film thru the projector and winds it onto the receiving spool. Sometimes that motor is out of synch with the projector drive motor and trys to pull the film thru to fast or turns to slow and the you get that "clicking " sound when the receiving spool isn't winding the film up fast enough and the film gets dragged on by those projector teeth and make that plastic clicking sound.
Watch the film while it is running between the two reels and the projector lens. The film should be slightly taunt going into the projector and slightly taunt coming back out of the projector. If you see the film grouping up in front of the projector drive or after, then you know your spools are needing greased up or there is a drag on the motors causing things to be unsynchronized.

This is definitely a mechanical problem and you need to watch the film being fed into the projector and how it is wound up n the receiver spool to see where the fault lies.

If you don't know how to service this type of machine, I would contact a Bell & Howell dealer and get it repaired/serviced. It possibly needs the magnetic head cleaning.

I have a Bell and Howell Model 456 Autoload Super8/Regular 8mm Projector bought in 1969. During projection, when the very end of the advancing film is no longer engaged by the rotating teeth, the film...


The Bell and Howell Model 456 Autoload was made that way ON PURPOSE. The last foot or so must be manually pulled from the projector. As described in the manual, "this safeguard has been designed to prevent the end of your film from flapping against the projector after your movie is completed."
If the entire film was going into the take up reel at the end automatically, then THAT was a defective occurence. It is not supposed to do that.
