I have the Crown, no rear shutter....

Is it possible I can be missing this? No sync connection on the Optar 135mm?

Tom; there should be two (about 1/2 in. long ) round posts coming out of the side of the shutter to mount a flash sync cord to. Its called an asa cord as i remember. If not you may have a barrel lens ( no shutter ) meant probably for a speed graphic. I can't really tell without seeing the lens. Hope this helps you. Don

Don, thanks, I do have these two, but how do I connect to them. A PC cable would not fit of course.
Thanks again.

You will need a synch cord with a bi-post end for your shutter.
