    This is an old projector and 8mm movies we found were probably taken in the late 1940's thru the 1960's. We inherited this projector and would like to see what is on some of the films.

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.

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

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.
