I would like to use a modern flash with my Superspeed Graphic. I can't get the flash contacts to show any kind of electrical continuity when I fire the shutter. Can I fire the flash directly from the romote contacts on the side of the camera by using a four pole momentary contact button. Would the flash be in Sync. with the shutter?

Strobes will sync with leaf shutters in the lens only. If the shutter contacts do not work, service the shutter. Focal Plane Shutters in Graflex/Graphic cameras only sync with FP bulbs.

Uh, the Superspeed camera didn't have a focal plane shutter.

Nevertheless, the recommendation to service the lens shutter is correct. Fred Lustig can do it for you.
