SOURCE: i have a bell & howell projector 8mm silent,

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

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.

How to replace a worm gear on a Bell & Howell model 2585 16mm film projector.


Replacing the worm gear on a Bell & Howell 16mm film projector is a very long and involved process requiring a complete teardown. It is similar to replacing a blown head gasket in an automobile engine. The worm gear is the heart of the mechanism and takes a lot of time consuming labor just to get to it. In the process you lose a bunch of critical adjustments which require resetting with special Bell & Howell tools/jigs/gauges. Many of these projectors are at least 30 to 40 years old and will also require re-lubrication.
The gear itself costs around $30-ish and takes 3 to 8 hours of labor to replace. Richard Patchett in Michigan and International Cinema Equipment in Miami, Florida does the worm gear replacement.

My son just purchased a Bell & Howell 2575C 16mm projector which seems in good working order; however, we cannot figure out how to turn on the light (the bulb appears to be fine)...we've threaded film,...


Chances are that if everything else seems fine and is coming on then most likely you have a bad bulb or it could be loose,make sure its fitted into the bulb holder assy good and snug,dont force it or you will break it at the base.Go to google and google your model number for the bell and howell projector and find out whats available and pricing.A middle of the road or average bulb should be suffice for what your doing.

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
