Randy, congratulatios on you new acquisition, looks like a beauty. Looks like with a little work it can be a nice camera. I know the excitement, yesterday I bought a nice Kodak Eastman No. 2D 8x10. It was a Craigslist purchase, and I too had to drive, 3 minutes, 12 blocks. Ok, Ok, sorry to rub it in, but it was literally just down the street and around the corner. Anyway have fun with your new camera.

Btw, unfortunately I don't know anything about the Linhofs, sorry I can't be of more help.

Roger
