I'm having some trouble figuring out how to correctly spool the film onto the projector so that it runs correctly. Please try to help me.

We will need more info before we can help. There are too many differnt kinds of projectors. Do you have a loose film that you need to get on a spool?

Do a search on the Internet using the projector name and model number. May be an operators manual available, with a threading diagram and maintenance procedures.

in most projectors the film loads on the right most side and the reel feeds from the bottom of the supply reel and the sprocket holes are facing out towards you as you look at the projector at the side where all the controls are

there is also often a thingamobob that you usually hold down to make the film advance correctly through the gate
