I recently purchased a Konvas 2M with a 17EP-16APK motor. The motor I received however is missing the metal piece that keeps the handle from moving around and also keeps it attached to the camera. Does anyone here know where I could find this part? Maybe someone here has a broken motor and can spare this part. I would greatly apreciate the help. Here are some pictures of the missing part:

You might check with Raf at Rafcamera.com or with Olex. You could also go to Konvas.org and see if anyone there has this stuff. Bruce at Aranda may have some spare parts. Worst case scenario, you could probably fabricate something that would work if you had to, after all, it's just a bracket, get the dimensions and have a machine shop make one if nothing else works.

Yes, try Bruce at Aranda Film. He has a motor modification be performs on these motors that involves a new housing and he may have some old ones. He fixed me up when the lower case on my motor was damaged in shipping.

Good luck,
