  1. Stiff Linhof 003668-90 leveling head fixed !

    In a previous thread, I mentioned having recently acquired a Linhof 003668-90 leveling head that was basically frozen and so stiff, it was unusable.

    Re: Linhof Crests-Counterfeits?

    Bob,
    Sorry about my confusion on what you posted about the boards. I probably should have done better research before I quoted you.

    On the subject of boards moving from side to side... At one...

    Re: Linhof Crests-Counterfeits?

    I think the Linhof rep mentioned something about a batch of Genuine Linhof Technika boards where the thickness of the paint caused fitment issues on some models. Maybe it was one of those boards? Or...

    Re: Linhof Crests-Counterfeits?

    So I'm really surprised someone else out there hasn't encountered the sub standard crests like I bought. These crests are metal and look real, they just have poor detail. The seller told me he bought...

  6. Re: Linhof Kardan leveling tripod head 003668/90 questions

    David,

  7. Re: Linhof Kardan leveling tripod head 003668/90 questions

    Thanks Bob,
    I appreciate the info. That's exactly what I needed to know.
  8. Re: Linhof Kardan leveling tripod head 003668/90 questions

    Thank you Bob. I was pretty sure the stiffness wasn't normal. The two arc shaped surfaces have a VERY sticky and thick grease between them. I suspect the grease is old and causing the problem. Do...
  9. Re: Linhof Kardan leveling tripod head 003668/90 questions

    Thanks abruzzi. Yep, that's the head I have. Mine won't move at all without a camera on it. I'm thinking the grease has thickened from age and is causing the stiffness.
  10. Re: Linhof Kardan leveling tripod head 003668/90 questions

    Thank you for the reply JMO. So if you are currently using this head, can you comment on the stiffness that I was referring to in my example? When you release the black lever on the rear of the...
