I need the spring that goes on the upper part of the film gate of an Elmo GS-1200 (see picture). My projector doesn't have it.
Does anyone has this spring for sale? Or the complete film gate?

Thanks in advance!

Marc, the part you need is called the pressure plate springs! For the GS1200 projector! I have what you need! Let me know!

If those springs are worn does that mean the film can skip either at random or when even good splices go through?

Are the springs easy to change? Are there any critical adjustments?

Yes, if the springs are weak they will make the film run unsteady! To give the springs more strength stretch both springs evenly for top and bottom! Then replaced! But remember they must be even! In order to run right!
