FD lens parts source?

  1. My FD 28-85mm zoom has met the fate of quite a few others, suffering a broken mount. It needs the one plastic barrel piece (part number CA2-3969-000, by the way) that seems to be the weak link in this lens. Does anyone have any ideas about finding this piece? Thanks!
     
  2. As of 2 1/2 years ago this part was still available from Canon parts
    in New Jersey. I don't have the number handy but believe I have
    posted the number on this site in a previous message on this lens.

    I repaired the lens myself and also added 3 extra screws to
    strengthen the mount assembly. I'm lucky that I have an optics lab
    and machine shop plus an ex-canon repairman to call upon.

    Cheers,

  3. The parts depot number is 732 521-7230. I believe it is called a 6th
    ring or intermediate ring and cost $13.52. The ring comes engraved
    with a new serial number, but is otherwise exactly the same.

  4. Hi Duane, good to hear from you again. I failed to search for your
    previous post, which quickly supplied the part number I spent half a
    day finding from a Canon parts diagram! But I did call Canon and was
    told the part is no longer available. I've entertained the thought
    of machining a duplicate from aluminum billet, but that's a project
    for another summer. Thanks for your help.
