Hi Jan -
Apparently there are adjustments inside but I don't know where they are.
There may be more than one, also, to adjust for linearity as well and this
could require a jig to do the calibration. Harry Fleenor can do this.
Do you still have the original SL66 screen? Make a controlled light setup,
camera on tripod looking at a neutral colored wall, and first read with the
original SL66 screen and then read with the new screen. Use the difference
in readings as your film speed setting compensation.
