The following is a good source for Eiki parts.

Also, Dwight Cody of the Boston Film Connection may have Eiki parts on hand
or know of a source close to you.

For Bell & Howell try Larry Urbanski in Illinois. In fact, if you want to
find 16mm projector parts go to, these
folks are much better organized than the exp film community when it comes to
16mm supplies and parts. The forum is actually run
by Urbanski.

BTW, get rid of that autoloader, those projectors should be cast off into
landfills, or the ocean, don't project film on them.
