RE: Eclair Cameras: ACL 1.5 motor vs. 2 motor

I suppose that when I am inching the knob, it allows (as you say) the claws to find the sprocket holes, thus eliminating the noise I would have otherwise heard had I not inched it properly. In other words, maybe when the sprocket holes are engaged correctly that is when I hear the least noise coming from my camera.

Anyway, I've run a lot of film through my camera, and I haven't had any problems with it. I'll be sending it off to get overhauled in the near future anyway.

Don't know why that would be.....the manuel says to load the mag and then inch the knob until the claws find the sprocket holes....after that, to my
understanding, the motor just turns 'round and 'round and if it has self
parking....stops with the shutter closed and the mirror in place.....could
you motor be out of alignment?
