Re: keystone movie projector

There should be a belt inside that transfers rotational power to the gear train. the belt may be a long spring type of belt.

8mm film does not wind or rewind through projector

Are you sure that once the film is threaded that you locked in the gears for feeding. Forgive me if this is a no brainer to you but I need to know what you have tried before going deeper into this.

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.

How do I replace drivebelt on sankyo dualux 1000 projector

Inside parts:
Small belt wheel (SBW)
Large belt wheel (LBW)
Motor Assembly (MA)
Fan Blades (FB)
Fan Blade Cover (FBC)
Make sure you have magnetic screwdrivers.
Remove MA - 4 screws.
Remove FBC - three screws
Loosen LBW and slide down shaft a small bit away from end. Need small Allen wrench.
Slip new belt around LBW (takes some fiddling).
Put LBW back to previous local and tighten.
Reattach FBC.
Put motor in place.
Stretch belt over FB and onto SBW. (It will make it.)
Screw in motor.
Good luck.

Bought a Bell & Howell Super 8 projector 481A off EBay and can't figure out how to thread the film.

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

Elmo St600 M super 8 projector sprocket will not turn

The drive belt on the porjector maybe broken. They tend to be made of rubber like an elastic band and tend to get hard and break easily. If this is the case, you may be able to substitute a large elastic band to replace the origional part.

I want to know how to rewind a film reel or reverse an Elmo FP-A movie projector. I have an old Elmo FP-A movie projector that works fine. I do not have the instruction manual that would explain how to...

There are 3 round knobs and 1 Autostart switch on the control panel. The key to rewinding this machine is by pushing the gray button down, while turning the Motor Knob to the "Run" position. Of course you'll need to start the original film back on its reel, directly. (Do not thread the film as you would normally.) BTW, you can show your films in reverse by using the Reverse button on the motor switch while its running. Hope this helps. Now, if I can find someone who can guide me in re-assembling my Elmo projector's lens, which I dis-assembled in order to clean the crud off the multi-lenses in the main lens unit itiself.

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.
