I refurbished a 40 years old Moviedeck 465 projector. Shutter Gear and lamp changed, cleaned, lubricating. Everything is working well except one thing. I can not adjust the frame. Now the picture upper 15% is showing the bottom 15%. If somebody already successfully adjust the frame in this Moviedeck please let me know. I read the Service Manual, but no mention about the Frame adjustment.
Other projectors usually has a level with, you can adjust the Frame from outside of the House.
Thanks:
Steve

I remember the R8/S8 selector lever also being the framer. You just don't move it as far.

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

CORRECT! You are right. I was blind [Confused] It is clearly stated FRAME. See pict: https://www.dropbox.com/s/95gb7sfipdx00y8/IMG_2010.jpg?dl=0
I just did not pay attention to the lever. I saw it is changing the FORMAT (i.e. normal 8 and super 8) but never thought this is also the Frame adjuster.
Thanks again:
Steve

Looks like Steve answered your question. I'll post these pics anyway for future reference.

Here's the framer lever... This can be set for Reg. 8mm and Super 8mm and adjustments in between.

Here's the lever linkage that moves the gate frame mask up and down.
