    Hello All,

    I scored a gaggle of fungi laden camera gear from a Pawn Shop yesterday, ('63-64 Nikon F, Ikoflex IIa, and a couple of Polaroids.

    One of the Poli's is a complete 320 Land kit with the 268 flash gun. The ground wire is loose (in the flash batterry compartment)...and I can't see where it attaches. If one of you all have one handy...please guide me as to where to solder this thing back. I would greatly appreciate it!


    Thanks!

    Tim

    I, too, would like to know where the ground/black wire should be soldered on a Polaroid 268 flash gun. Can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    I have two at home (one coincidentally had one of its wires fall off after only maybe 10 photos), I'll snap a pic of the intact one when I get home unless someone beats me to it.

    See above

    I'm not sure if it's even soldered, perhaps just shoved behind the tab
