Any knowledge on the Graflex Stobonar IV head disassembling out there? I have four of these beige heads two good, one flaky and a dead unit. The electronics donít scare me, but I need some help on where to start the disassembly. I would like to keep the cases intact.
The metal bezel on the front lens does appear to be free of the body, but I don't what to force the issue.

Is Strobonar the same as Stroboflash?
Stroboflash Service Instructions and Parts Cat. 11/1963, Graflex a Subsidiary of General Precision, 28 pages.
Refer to figures 1,2, and 3 of the PARTS LIST and disassemble the lamp head in the order of the index numbers. Note the following special instructions.
a). squeeze the top and bottom of lamp housing assembly (1,figure 1) together so as to expand the sides to clear plug (7, figure 3) and socket (. Then draw lamp housing assembly from chassis assembly.
b). Unsoder leads from pins of flash tube (7, figure 2). Remove screw (5), bracket complete(4), and spacer(6).
c). Rotate wafer base of flash tube until three notches align with dimples in tube portion of reflector assembly and gently remove flash tube.

Special instructions for reassembly also apply.
