SOURCE: belle & Howell Super 8 Projector model 254RS loading problem

Don't have the motor switch in the still position when loading -make sure it is on FORWARD. Look at the little holes in the film and make sure the film is on the same side as the little grooves on the drive gear.
PS -let the bulb cool off before try to move the projector ,the bulbs are very expensive and hard to find.
If you do use the still position to view a frame do it for just a few seconds or the bulb will burn the film. Good luck- Tom.

SOURCE: Bought a Bell & Howell Super 8 projector 481A

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.

Thank you

SOURCE: manual for bell and howell autoload 8mm projector

I find this directions for the Bell & Howell Auto Load 8mm Super Movie Projector: Super 8 is a small format motion picture film that came into widespread use in the 1960s and '70s. Prior to Super 8's introduction to the home movie market in 1965, the most common formats were 8 and 16 mm. Super 8 widened the frame without widening the film, making it possible to project Super 8 and 8 mm film through the same projectors. One ubiquitous model was the Bell and Howell Autoload.

1. Raise the reel arms upward and outward. Put the takeup reel on the back arm and the processed roll of Super 8 film on the front arm. The end of the film should point toward the projector.
2. Push the power switch all the way up so that the light comes on. You will hear the projector motor fire up. Make sure the direction lever that sticks out of the middle of the projector horizontally is set to forward rather than in reverse.
3. Press down on the upper loop former, the lever just below and to the left of the front reel. Line the end of the film up with the opening in the front of the loop former and let the projector pull it through. The film will wind through the sprockets and begin to spool out at the bottom of the projector.
4. Let go of the upper loop former and pull the film underneath the guide rollers at the bottom left and right corners of the projector. The film will continue spooling through slowly. Allow it to do so until it is long enough to reach the takeup reel.
5. Slip the end of the film leader into one of the holes in the center of the takeup reel. Your film will begin to project as soon as the leader spools all the way through.

Hope this helps,

SOURCE: Bell+Howell FILMO 8mm Projector

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.

I have the same model, came out late 1963 by the way, been looking for the service manual and parts myself on ebay, but no luck. The company that took over the projector parts for bell & howell was KMR Electronics 714-979-0400 SANTA ANA, CA. There website seems to have disappeared though.
