I finally got the strobe from ebay.
It's an old Morris III TTL and it looks nice.
I did a small tries without film with the unit in TTL mode, Nikonos in auto and then i did a shot with the camera cap on and a shot pointing at a bright light.
What i can see is theat form my feeling the strobe output more or less the same light...is that bad or i'm just not able to evalute te duration and intensity of the strobe?
Any idea to see if the strobe works fine without wasting a film ???? Like using a digital camera ?

the test you did sounds like it is supposed to work. You could also try pointing it away from the lens and directly towards the lens : the last one should give only a very small bit of light. You should be able to see the difference...
