Hello,

 

It seems I can't attach my 400ft mag bolex motor to the mag. Position is correct (with the motor cable pointing to the mag) but even pressing strongly the motor remains unlocked and I am not able to turn clockwise.

 

Are there two versions of motors or some part is missing from mine? I attach pictures of both.

 

Marcos

I have to thank Jean-Louis Seguin for his advice. The disk you see in the center of the motor is actually the back side of the piece you see in the magazine. I had to remove it because it was sticked there by mistake. It's fully working now.
