Usually there is a series of clips or levers of some sort that allows the film to pass around the sound drums and alignment path behind the projector lens. There is usually a line printed inside the projector to show the thread path for the film around the various mechanisms. But before you do that you might want to consider finding a photo shop that converts the film to a CD format. All of the old film media breaks down over time and you may be able to enhance it, preserve it and avoid burning it up in the projector(a common occurrence in those days) all at the same time.

I have a minolta autodual 8 film projector but the front reel is turning backwards in the wrong direction. How do I change the direction to turn in the same direction as the back reel.


I assume you haven't put a reel of film onto the projector and looped it through to the back spool. The front spool usually 'freewheels' whilst the film is pulled through the projector and taken up by the motor driven rear spool.
It is possible that the friction drive and/or drive belt have deteriorated with age, as the mentioned projector is a rather elderly 'classic' of the dual 8mm series.
If in doubt, don't risk your family pictures. Try the unit with an old piece of film on small spools.

I need to find the plastic adapter which you can attach to the feed reel which changes the film from reg 8 to super 8


Super 8 and Regular 8mm are the same film, the difference being the way they were supplied to the consumer - 8mm was supplied loose on a reel, Super 8 was supplied in a pre-loaded cassette. Both can still be purchased new from B&H Photo and other dealers.

Re Keystone 68 projectors:
I join the growing throngs of folks who wish to view their family archives in 8 mm before submitting the reels to the digitals for conversion. Doesn't anyone have an answer for us? I continue to search, if I find, I'll post.

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.
