  1. I honestly did not take note of the run time, but certainly long enough for most applications. I don't think I have anything online, but I'll see if I can dig something up.
  2. Late to the party and the first to leave, that's me. I decided to part with my 70-DR, only because I wasn't using it enough. Here is a link if anyone is interested: https://www.ebay.com/itm/293570295946?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 I did a CLA myself with high quality synthetic teflon impregnated oil, and it tested just fine with 250D film. Probably hums along even better than new with a good modern oil.
  3. I know I'm late to the party, but does the 240 have a critical focus screen like the 70-DR?
  4. Really? I'm pretty handy at fixing film cameras. There is no way to sneak some graphite into the spring without removing the spring? (I'm at work at the moment, so I can't examine it). If not, can I assume it is still properly "lubricated" if the graphite doesn't really leak out and (unlike grease) will not harden and gum up?
  5. Hi, I'm just starting to clean up and lubricate an old bell and howell 70DR. The regular lubricant points are obvious, but is there grease in the compression spring / winding key area? If so, can I open that area up to lubricate without spring danger (as in putting in grease without trying to remove the spring)? Thanks for any help.
