When I bought my GS 1200 a few weeks ago, I also bought a couple of new parts from van Eck. I did this after some advice from Bill Parsons.
Today I finally got around and started to install the new parts. I do not have small screw drivers here at the cottage, so I had to use my good old friend; my Leatherman in addition to a spring hook I had bought from van Eck also.
I had to remove the lens aswell to get some working space. Everything went fine until I was about to re-attach the screw for the spring (the one I point at with the spring hook). Suddenly I lost the screw, and it dropped into the projector where I could not see it. It was a complete circus while I tried to recover it. I opened the back cover also, but I could not see it on the bottom where I expected it to be. I had to turn the projector around back and forth until it finally dropped out, and off course, fell on the floor where I had to search for it with a torch light. But I found it, and this time I managed to reinstall it :-)
Now I have the two new parts in place. I had a test run with a test film (again from van Eck) since I didn't want to ruin one of my regular films in case I had made a mistake. Worked like a charm!
And here ends the dramatic projector report from Norway ;-)
