Hi all. I just bought a Bronica 135 W back and I can't seem to make it work. I believe the problem is in the insert. The take-up spool for the film rotates freely and isn't connected to the metal gear which is stuck in place, it doesn't move no matter what. Does anyone have any experiences with this back? The metal gear on the insert should be rotating, right? I'm loading the film as instructed, could it be that I'm doing something wrong? Here is the image of the insert with the stuck gear on top.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

GOOGLE butkus.org a website that has almost free camera manuals that you can download and print. He only asks for three dollars or some such low figure.
