    RB67 seal kits?

    I have developed a leak which I have traced down to the film back but I want to just go ahead and do the whole camera.

    Does anyone make a full kit for body and back? As well as the rotating back mechanism?

    Right off hand I'd say to find John Goodman. Haven't seen him on here in a while. Tell him his APUG friends miss him.

    He was on here back a few months ago. He's here sporadically, usually to sell something and bearing a good story about the item.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I just got a kit from Jon about a month ago for a Mamiya 330, he sells a great product and quick to ship. And my only connection to Jon is a happy customer, been buying from him for about 8 years.
    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”
    ― Dwight D. Eisenhower

    +1 for Jon Goodman. I did my RB67 with his kits. Works great. Make sure to check the 4 screws on the rotating assembly where the film back attaches. I found those screws had loosened a bit and cause a slight light leak. Snugged those screws up and no more leak.

    I ended up using a kit from Aki-Asahi on mine, it wasn't leaking but the foam was pretty dodgy. Another interesting tid-bit about the RB I have a Pro-S with a Pro SD back, when I got it it had a Pro-S back with dodgy foam but didn't leak. The seals on both sides of the rotating assembly were completely missing and it didn't leak light a bit. I later added the Pro-SD back because I found it cheap locally, I used mine for probably 4 months with no foam on the rotating assembly and never got a single light leak. I finally decided to replace it before my luck ran out.
