The camera only runs a few seconds because everything in it is gunked up and it needs cleaning and lubrication, likely.
Don't EVER run an old camera or projector without making sure the movement is properly lubricated, because you can wear out the cam very very quickly without proper lubrication. I don't know anyone working on the Cine-Kodaks offhand... I know that Jesse Chambless had a tech who did very good work on them but charged the usual Chambless prices.
