    Yep that was the first thing I checked and they are there. There is tension on them too.

    OK I poked a shoelace end in the body and the frame lines came up nicely.

    On the revolving back, I found the mechanism which looks as though it has something snapped off the end of it. It basically looks like one of those little allen-head grub screws with a hollow end. If that makes sense at all.
    The spring below it appears to be in the pushed in position but the little noggin is barely coming above the surface of the back of the RB adapter.
    Any ideas? A new revolving back adapter?

    EDIT:
    I can also fire the shutter in landscape orientation (which shouldn't happen without the multi-exposure interlock) and not in portrait orientation.

    You can continue using it as is, as long as you don't mind.

    It fires n has no effect on the image?... that is basically what we need most in a camera, the rest is gravy.

    Shame to waste a rev back, I know a few bodies that can use one in any condition.

    Yeah, I don't really mind but it's a pain because I know I won't remember the orientation of the back.

    Nope images are Ok but the revolving back seals are shot. If I get a new one I'm happy to send you this one if you're interested.

    Thank you very much, I do appreciate the offer but.....

    ALLLLLL the way from therrrrrrrrrrrrre? Postage will cost as much a new one.

    Maybe someone in your area can use one?

    To remeber the orientation of the back... put a red dot sticker on the top of the back so you know when you are in portrait mode. Also cocking it on it's side should be enough of a reminder.

    That's a good idea Paul. Thanks. Or maybe I can repair it and use it instead of buying a new one.

    What noggin thing is snubbd off? Isn't the pin in the middle on the side the one for the red bars? That's the one that fits in the hole you activated the bars with.. correct? The mechanism works by running it up a ramp inside the halves if you look inside as you turn it. Yes? Does tha pin go in n out freely?

    Paul, that pin on the side isn't there! It's basically broken at the base (by the looks of it).
