If you can hear the motor running then it is most likely the belt that connects the motor to the takeup is broken or stretched out and not longer driving the reel. That is a pretty easy repair.
If you cannot hear the motor then the trouble is more serious and probably not worth repair.

SOURCE: How do I thread the film through an 8mm B&H Projector

http://www.folkstreams.net/vafp/stream.php?id=97

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.

SOURCE: film is not being drawn into the gears

Check the drive belt, if the belt is too loose it will not pull the film inbeasuse ther is not enough tension on the pulleys and the belt will slip. If you need the belt, good luck finding it as there are nearly impossible to find.

Hi
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..

Hope this helps..if not pls ask me more..
Regards

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.
