Re: kodaK EKTAGRAPHIC MODEL E2 SLIDE PROJECTOR
You can use an ENH lamp which is 250 watts. it costs more (shop around- margins are high on lamps) but lasts an average of 175 hours vs the 300 watt ELH lamp at 35 hours.
You can also get ELH and ENH lamps from Wiko and Fuji in a "-5" version, ie ELH-5. It's built for 125 volts rather than the typical actual house voltage of 110-120 v. This allows them to burn much longer. There is a marginal lowering of light output in these forms.

Supplied with 82V, 300W EXR lamp Projection Lamps Quartz-halogen 82 V projection lamps- Here is service manual link http://resources.kodak.com/support/pdf/en/manuals/slideProj/manual/ektagraphic_sm.pdf Several different Models all say EXR 300W As CORRECT Bulb : EXR, 300 W (35-hour lamp life at full lamp/medium-brightness) Sampling of other lamps: EXY (200 hours/less brightness) EXW (15 hours/maximum brightness) FHS (70 hours/medium brightness) Use combinations of lamp brightness, plus half- and full-lamp settings to approximate image brightness in multi-projector presentations. Lamp Tips • Projector operation on line voltages above 125 volts greatly reduces the lamp life. • Unplug the projector before changing the lamp. • Allow for unrestricted flow of air to the exhaust vent to prolong lamp life. • Gently wipe off any fingerprints with a soft cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol.
This is NOT an easy question to answer. You need service manual & parts list for an E-2 to be sure you remove the components in the correct order. Check with www.micro-tools.com to see if they have service documentation on their website. They have purchased all remaining projector parts from Kodak, so if you need parts, they are a great resource. Sorry I can't help more! Best of Luck !
First of all, verify you are using the correct lamp: it should be a 120volt, 300watt, ANSI Code "ELH" lamp. (This may seem too basic, but you'd be surprised at the number of people who try the incorrect lamp). If the lamp is correct and you can not insert it by pushing the base of the lamp into the terminal connector relatively easily, then chances are you have a build-up of material on one or both of the lamp contacts caused by arcing (arcing is caused by loose lamp terminal contacts). If this is the case, then you need to replace the lamp terminal assembly (the ceramic-like white piece the lamp terminals should slide into). You should still be able to buy a lamp terminal assembly for your Ektagraphic AF-1 from: www.micro-tools.com Good Luck !!
The newest style eliminated the heat absorbing lens and (I think) made the mirror do that job. This improved the light output marginally. I don't know if the new style of lamp module is still available or not. You can ask a Kodak dealer or if in the US/Canada (shipping applies) try www.micro-tolls.com and search for p/n 2H2256.
Alternatively you can use EXW lamps which are high brightness (though still 300 watts). However these are very expensive and have a short lamp life...15 hours I think.
