I just purchased an arriflex 16s from ebay, it has not arrived yet.  It does not have a Magazine cavity cover . Does anyone have an extra?, How much? or where I might get on. The motor was advertized as being "seized" and would not turn.

I may be naive, but with my mechanical backround, I think I can repair it. The motor is the variable speed type reverse/forward.

Next, What would be the voltage/amp power supply to use or I can make this also. Thanks for information from everyone in advance.

Michael

I refurbish Arriflex 16 s for a hobby, I have the parts you asked for, cover plate, and many others. I can tell you the system runs at 8 volts. You might be able to trade the motor for credit on a working one if you do not try to fix yourself.

When I get the motor, and look at it I will let you know.  And trade for credit?, With you? for a working variable speed?

Let me know about this offer.

Thanks

Michael

I have  400ft mags that need  a torque motor, you only need one torque motor. I have both torque motors and magazines available.

As for the motor I would give you some credit for either a variable speed if I had a spare at the time, or a fixed speed 24fps that I know I have all dependent on how toaste the motor is.

The Arri-S is a great little camera and you can do & learn a lot with it.  Enjoy!

If the motor is truly seized, it's either the bearings or it was dropped and the inching knob and/or shaft is bent.  If the barrel won't turn, it was probably dropped and damaged the housing.  If the motor runs but the camera doesn't it's probably the rubber coupling which tends to deform and dry rot - I have replacement kits for those.  If anyone needs any parts, I have just about everything.

I should read and update more often..  The motor that came with this arri16 was seized and it was the bearings. I ordered and installed new sealed bearings, cleaned all of the parts, polished contacts, applied lube conservatively and the motor now works. I actually had it powering the camera.  I had issues with the eyepiece. It has water damage and rust on the glass.  I used oxalic acid to dissolve the rust with absolutely NO damage to the glass lenses.  It will soon will soon be back together.  with light lubing(I do not have any array lubes at all) the action of the diopter seems very smooth.  More updates as I progress.

Thanks to all for help

The deal I got on arri is this:  arriflex 16mm S, NO COVER for the film compartment.  An Anginieux 10-150 zoom lens(a little rough looking, but working) an arriflex 8V variable motor(Now repaired and running), the diopter/viewfinder has rust on two of the interior lenses(rust got removed). All for $415.00  Might be a bargain, not really sure. Once it is running, I will think it is a bargain

I just received my 16S that I got through e-Bay.  I paid $499.99 + S&H.  It's all there and in what I consider very nice condition for its age.  Now, I just need a lens and power supply and I'm ready to go.
