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.

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..

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.
