Help with Linhof Super Technika IV Cam Removal

  1. I am attempting to follow the instruction manual for removing a cam for my 240 Tele Arton on my Super Tech IV. It is supposed to be a simple lift and pull. It won't budge when I lift to pull. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Have you been able to freely lift it up without hitting the focus rails? That means that the front standard is in the camera body and you have advanced the rails to expose the cam.
    If you have and the cam does not lift up freely and easily pull out by pulling it forward then your camera needs service. In the USA that is Precision in Niles, IL. The owner is Bob Watkins.
  3. Yes, I have moved the front standard as far back in as it will allow and ratched out the rails to expose the cam. The cam holder lifts up freely but acts as if the cam is permanently affixed. I'm wondering if it's the results of 25 years of storage. Thanks for your reply, I thinks it may checkup time.
