    As far as the retaining ring; put...

    Both the negative stage and lens stage can be adjusted with Allen wrenches. There are three adjustment points for each. Do you have a manual? There’s probably a pdf on line.

    Re: How Can I Get More Bellows?

    With a converted lens, you need more bellows than the nominal focal length. The only convertible lens I have converts to 475mm in one configuration, but the flange focal length is 545mm.

    That Majestic head is overkill for a 4x5 and will be a lot to carry around. You should be able to remove the head and attach the camera to the top of the tripod—no head. Give it a try.
