    Omega D2, some assembly required

    Hi everyone,

    I recently purchased an Omega D2 from an APUG member. I am trying to assemble it at home, but I'm having trouble getting the condenser part to line up with the negative carrier.

    I'm all ears to anyone who can tell me how this should go!

    Of course, if I haven't shown you enough pictures to tell, let me know. I can work it out quickly. Thanks!

    You got the bar assembly upside down. On the first photo, I can see you placed a large L shaped assembly for the top screw and pointing up. No. That one goes to the bottom screw with handle bar pointing DOWN. Let me post a photo of mine for you.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Haha - thanks!

    I knew I had it all wrong, but I'm not too proud to ask;-)

    Now, I'm going to go down to the basement and fix it. I may be back with more questions in this thread!

    You will be rewarded when it's all done. It's a wonderful piece of American engineering. I have two here. PM me if you need help and I don't answer here.

    Okay, I have the lifter arms flipped to the normal position, but the condenser is still not lining up with the negative carrier. Here are more pictures:

    I need you to back up a bit and take a side view like I did for you. Your condenser assembly is too far back and I can't see how pivoting part is installed.

    Okay, here's a side view from further away. Also, I believe that this may have been modified. It's starting to look like there are some elements that are not painted with the same matte. I believe I may have the not-so-rare frankenstein model...

    You seem to have a custom piece.... or maybe not all parts are from D2.

    Couple of weird things...

    How "thick" is the slanted "vertical" railing? Mine is only 1 3/4" from back to front. Your piece looks much thicker.
    See you have two pieces of "tabs" with screw with nothing attached? The aluminum bar with brass rods go there, not where it is now.
    The bottom piece looks to have something attached it to move it forward.

    Compare yours closely with mine and see the difference.

    I won't be surprised there were some versions during the LooooooooooooooooNG time Omega produced these but it looks like yours have been customized.
