I have just got my 54H back from the Russian Sinar dealer (lost and found back, advertised here at LL forum). The back arrived with an adapter, allegedly a 54H to Sinar-M adapter, the part number 551.64.233. Unfortunately I am unable to mount the back on the adapter (or vise versa). The adapter has 4 holes, the back - 8 holes. As I understand the shimming is not necessary with 54H backs. It looks like I got a wrong part. Now I will be forced to wait another month or two.
My dealer does not return my calls (holiday I suppose ). I ordered the M adapter from Sinar through the dealer and the ordering information do not have the part number. I am sure that it is my dealer's fault and the adapter looks a bit used to me ( no Sinar packaging).
Is there a way to get the Sinar part numbers online to check the adapter I got?
I tried the Sinar.ch, sinarcameras.com, and sinarbron web sites to locate a Sinar catalogue with the parts numbers. I found an sinarback instruction of 2002 with a lot of dated info and no information on Sinar -M parts. The 2007 paper on Digital configuration mentioned the adapter kit #551.65.035.
Is it the right part?
Is there a right adapter for me at the Sinar dealers anywhere in Europe to buy urgently? I am frustrated and feel ready order the needed part from anywhere in the world.
Thank you . I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year,
