Hi Doug,

At first it looked like the motor and body would have to be married and matched
in Solms, however some ingenious engineer came up with a couple of left handed
wing nuts that allow for the motor to be quickly screwed (and I think the buyer)
to the fire wall and locking it in place to drive the front and rear drive
wheels alloowing for 36 exposure miles per roll.

And if you think that's confusing just wait for the new modified muti-speed
touch transmision using summicron gears made of titanium! :)
