67 vs 67ii screen size same?

Hi guys,
I've been looking for a BB-61 split screen for my 67ii and this guy contacted me saying he has one on his 67 (not 67ii) but not sure if it was shimmed down or not. Does anyone know if it had to be physically modified to fit an 67 and will I be able to take his BB-61 and reframe it with a frame that I have?
Thanks in advance.

Nope. Not the same. I have both cameras and the screens are not interchangeable and would require some modifications. I have put a variety thru the P67 including a nice Beattie grid.

Consider that just about everything on the 6x7 and 67 camera bodies is not compatible with the later (newer) 67II camera bodies. The exception being the eyecup.
Swapping incompatible parts or using parts that have been modifed from the 67II to the older 67 has caused over-enthusiastic owners a lot of grief (and damage to their camera).
