Hey Everybody---I hope this finds you well. I acquired a parts camera recently--Super graphic. The body is in very good shape. It's in pieces, though. I catalogued the parts I need. I found a rail on the 'bay, but now need the rest of the bed parts (not the bed). + the Super graphic logo piece across the top of the bed (when closed).

I have a limited amount of funds to spend and know these parts can be pricey. I'd be willing to consider trading a functional speed graphic if we can put it together. Thanks!

Thanks in advance for any help or direction to go you can give!

If you have any leads to finding these parts, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

the only way parts are available anywhere is if someone disassembled a body for its parts. NOS are extremely rare and its unlikely you will find any.
Parts bodies crop up on ebay on occasion and is your best bet.

I hope this finds all you well and enjoying the day. I've been acquiring parts for my Super Graphic and I'm down to just a few remaining. Please let me know if you have and would be willing to part with for a reasonable sum. Thanks!

I'm looking for the following:
Graflex Super Graphic Rangefinder plunger and spring (return side)--Rangefinder moves one way, but I'm guessing spring has lost it's springiness and won't return the cam to position once it's traveled from one side to the other.
Focus Lock lever and related nut/screws etc that fits on the right hand side of the bed (looking down)
Focus springs (directly under the focus knob rod pinion that provides tension--shaped like inverted Ws)
Battery door cover (Not necessary to function, but would be nice aesthetically.
One arrow-shaped spring that goes on the graflok back--keeps the chrome pieces connected to the back when removed. (This is an extra back I received as a bonus--just want to make it work.)

The camera is very useable, but these final pieces will bring it back to as close to new as I can make it.

I will have extra parts. I'll take pactures and make a list for anyone who might be needing pieces.

Thanks in advance for any help or leads you might have!

PS--I purchased what parts Pacific Rim camera had as well as another person's I found online. I now have an extra body (entirely stripped by another as well as extra rotating back that's missing a few minor pieces (lock springs to prevent free rotation). Plus, a pop up focus insert minus the focus cloth. Also, a PressLok quick release. Part of me wants to see about putting another one together from found parts, but part of me is ready for the next project and some actual photo time!

The position of the tube in the camera body affects if the cam will be moved from the infinity position, bed slide fully retracted, to the closest focusing distance, bed slide fully extended, bed guide removed. The metal bed slide becomes permanently bowed upward after years of use and drags on the bed guide preventing the slide from moving forward. The easiest fix is to bond a small piece of material near the lead edge of the bed slide and pull it out. I usually turn the focus beyond what I think is the subjects position, pull the RF slide out, then carefully focus which pushes the RF slide back.
