Just found one of these on Evilbay and was wondering it will work on my Century. Thinking it might be a good long lens for my kit

You can't use it converted (with the front cell removed) on a Century. All 2x3 Graphics are too short to focus a 265 to infinity.

Sorry, should have written rear cell. The news is unchanged.

I see rust spots on two shutter blades, very dirty glass, a $25 lens/shutter.
