  • Bell & Howell 456 Film Drive Roller

    The rubber over the Film drive roller has become sticky and doesn’t work anymore. I believe the part number is 09624. I need this part and how to change it. Can anyone help? Click image for larger version

    Here's a brand new replacement on eBay. I've purchased from this seller in the past, and he's very trustworthy.

      Thank you. I have looked and searched everywhere. I can’t thank you enough.

      Also, is there a belt dressing ( no slip) available to put on the belt on my B & H Lumina MX33? It’s weak but not broken. I know there is dressing to put on car belts.

      Thank you

        Lewis there are automotive belt dressings available on the market. Have you considered just replacing the belt with a new one? I'm sure they are available for purchase. In fact the gentleman who sells those feed tires in the link, also sells new belts. You may want to ask him if he stocks one.

          Yes I have considered replacing the belt, but read where that is difficult. Will try belt dressing first.

            9Click image for larger version  Name:	image.jpg Views:	0 Size:	110.4 KB ID:	51052 I also have a problem with the large reel, it won’t stay on.There must be a u clip to hold it on. I made a u clip that seems to work but makes it difficult to remove. There is something missing but I am not sure what. Here is a picture of the reel hub and cover. Perhaps to can give me advice on this. Thank you. Click image for larger version  Name:	image.jpg Views:	0 Size:	110.4 KB ID:	51051

              Lewis belt change is a pita on these model Bell & Howell's from research I just did. However, I found a DIY you might be interested in. This is a post from 2016 where someone was asking the same thing. Our very own (the one and only) Janice Glesser had a solution for this person back then. Here's a link:
              ​​​​​​https://8mmforum.film-tech.com/cgi-b...c;f=1;t=010838
              As far as the take-up spindle I'm not sure on that. I never owned a Lumina model. I did have a few model's 456, 466, and can't remember the other one. You could try asking Edwin Van Eck, he may know....https://van-eck.net/en/
              Also these projectors use the old style "fat" bulb if I remember correctly? There is an upgrade available being sold on eBay. I think it fits the 456 and several other models. This kit essentially upgrades to the more desirable halogen bulb. The assembly slides into the projectors bulb socket, and gives power to the new bulb, etc. Here's a link if interested. https://www.ebay.com/itm/174486665293
              I will say the 456 I had many years back was very kind to film, and was very bright with a 150 watt bulb. The 1.2 zoom lens was also very sharp.
              Anyways hope some of this helps you out. You have come to a great community of film collectors, etc.
