Source of replacement parts for discontinued Pentax lenses?

Hi everyone,

I have a couple of Pentax 50mm's, one the 1.7 Pentax-A, and one the 1.7 Pentax-F. Both of them are in working mechanical order, but the F has the common broken filter ring problem, and the A is missing its filter ring entirely!

Does anyone know of a source for these parts? I've been on the lookout on ebay for the parts and/or broken lenses from which I can scavenge them, but so far I've had no luck.
