Default Re: Bell and Howell TQII 1652 16mm projector

OK, so before I fit the new speed module and feed through my tester film to set the speeds up correctly, I did want to seek your opinions as to how I should be setting the shuttle Ďpull downí cam. Clearly there is something amiss with its current setting (and thereís probably been a problem there for a while now if Iím honest as it makes a racket, looks like itíll all drop to bits at any time, and it doesnít hang onto the film as I think it should). I donít want it to go wrecking film!

OK, so attached to this post are a couple of write-ups from Bell and Howell. The first one purports to be for the 1595, 2585, 2590 and 2592 and just mentioned tightening it up until slight binding/ratcheting is heard and then back of 1/16th turn. The second is for the TQII 1652 (and others Ė several 16xx series). The second talks about all sorts of tools and I must confess I canít understand what itís getting at.

I canít comprehend why, when the mechanisms look the same between the different projects, there should be different procedures.

Any comments are of course welcome.

Thank you.
