    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.

    +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.
