    Does anyone have a manual for these? I just bought one off the auction site and would like the info if I can find it. Bulb type?

    Did you get the whole enlarger or just a head? If just the head, that's stinks - I had one for sale here...

    I got the head and bellows assembly (basically all but the chassis). One of my 23CII's has the start of some slipping on the gears. This one went pretty cheap and I've been going to try one for some time now and it seemed like a cheap experiment. I had seen yours earlier and then saw this with some cannibal potential for my situation and bought it. Best wishes on selling yours... it looks like a nice, clean one. Here's the one that I got:

    Thanks for the pdf file. I now realize that I had the info as I have the manual and didn't recall that the VC info was included. Many Thanks!

    Sweet! Wish I would have bought that one. hahaha. That has all the pieces to install it on a 23CII it looks like. Mine doesn't. Oh well :smile: Not the end of the world.

    The beseler website also a couple of exploded-view parts lists for the 23CIII. Worth looking at and downloading for future reference...
