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.

I found a web (D'Antiques Movie Projectors ) site for an 482a projector which is almost identical to the 481a projector. It had the information I needed.
You also dalled and provided a toll free number at which I may be able to purchase an owners manual.

Well Bell and Howell have a website, so i would suggest rtying them first to see where the distributors local to you are. Or you can contact a camera store and see if they will accept it as a repair or supply the parts

I have the same model with the exact same problem. In fact I have 4 of these projectors 2 are the 1481 and the other 2 are 1462. Basically they are the same inside with the 3 cone drive set up. All of theses projector suffer with this sooner or later. I would like to find replacements too. However I can help you with getting drive working and I have repaired my 1481 successfully using converted domestic rubber tap washers drilled out and ground down to the same shape. They take a while to do and you need to make sure that they are not lumpy but smooth. I hope this helps, if you want details let me know, Rob
