Is anybody familiar with the Haflexx motor for the ACL ? (Not the NPR, different one.)
It's on an ACL that I bought, and I can't find any info on it. Since it's an ACL 1, I suspect the original motor burned out pulling 120m. loads.
The motor has crystal speeds of 24, 25, and 30 fps, and no non-crystal speeds.
It also has an EXT female connector, which I take to be to synchronize the motor to an outboard controler. I read somewhere that the NPR Haflexx motor can be synchronized to Arri gear of the period (mid-70's). Does that sound plausible ?
The motor also has a second connector, a Cannon 4 pin male. I'm thinking it could be for power, but typically the ACL motor gets its power through the camera, not the other way around.

Any help or info would be appreciated !

No response so far... Is anybody familiar with the Haflexx motor for the NPR, then ? Or some other Haflexx motor that could be similar ? Perhaps the design features are the same ?
What about the Arri outboard synch system (probably for the SR generation) ? The synch connector is a small 11-pin female plug.
