In Topic: Lubrication for an Arri BL

22 August 2018 - 05:20 PM

Haven't serviced a 16S, S/B, M or BL in over eight years. For a thorough CLA, back in the 2000's, it was near $1000. And as Dom mentioned, we stripped the movement down completely (his image shows some bearings still installed, all of those came out and went into the ultrasonic cleaner). Then we would rebuild them exactly as they had at the factory. The thing with those cameras is that each one was hand made, so each camera was rebuilt "hand made" with multiple adjustment points along the way. Very time consuming. But when the camera was completely rebuilt, it would "sing". For about four years, then you had to redo everything again. That's one of the drawbacks of "wet" cameras.

In Topic: Which Arri 16 is this Mag Port Cover Compatible With

Sorry not to get back to you. Definitely 16BL port cover, and you are right, 16BL and 16M mags are different and not interchangeable but the port covers are.

I believe it is also compatible with the Arriflex 16BL.  Definitely not the Arriflex 16S or 16S/B.

OK, Thanks. There is supposed to be a plastic cover over those, and that means the camera is set up for European 25fps, as opposed to American 24fps.

What gear set is in the camera? If you open the door on the camera body, there a two gears under a clear plastic cover in the center of the film chamber (behind the door) that should each be numbered. One will probably say 25 or 24 on it. Can you post what those numbers are?

 

Thanks.
