I think it is similar to POTA. Look in an older Morgan and Morgan Lab manual for formula. Mine is 1983 version, but is currently in storage.

I think Technidol LC is most likely a kodak secret as i have never seen a recipe for it although I have heard it is silmiliar to POTA. Recently read somewhere that Diafine works well with tech pan. See if you can talk a local photo lab into to giving you some of their C41 developer overflow, I was impressed with the job it did. Contrast is a little higher but not much. Rate at about 50 asa and develop for ten minutes at 20 degrees C.

I've been using diafine with tech pan with great results. The key is to develop in the "b" solution for exactly 1 1/2 minute to keep the contrast normal. Diafine is a two solution developer that is insensitive to temperature (between 70 and 85 F), to inconsistent agitiation, and to developing times, except in the case of tech pan in the "B" solution. Cost is also low, a factor to those of you who use technidol.
