Dmitri you shouldn't need a helical focusing mount(very expensive) with the Horseman FA. I used this lens with the Horseman VH which I believe has the same focusing rail as the FA. Focusing was ok, however there is very little room for lens movements although the FA has a flap that moves out of the way for rising front. Regards,

Very expensive?

Not really. In the US the Rodenstock helical focusing mounts for Rodenstock lenses in 0 shutter from the 35mm 4.5 to the 150mm 5.6 are $380.00 MSRP and camera stores usually discount them.
