Mounting a Symmar 360mm f5.6 lens

Large Format forum from Photo.net - photo.net
I have recently bought a Symmar 360mm f5.6 convertible lens. minus shutter. I have now discovered that a No.5 Compound shutter will cost around £250 and having it mounted proffessionally will cost around the same.

Whoops!

I already own a Packard type shutter with an aperture of 105mm. I found an iris diaphragm with an aperture of 64mm on Ebay.

I have the machining skills to make the threaded adaptors that I need to mount this lens but how do I determine the spacing between the lens elements?

Can anyone help me?

Thanks, Norman
