Belle & Howell Super 8 Projector model 254RS loading problem

We have the above projector and cannot figure out how to load the film. My sister put it on the reels, but fried a frame. Any way we can get instructions how to load it? Really want to see the films. Thanks, joshar

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.

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.

I have a bell & howell projector 8mm silent, model No. 1481 serial No. 7186089 and the driving surface of the 3 cones that grip the drive wheel have perished, where can i find replacement drive cones...


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

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
