Ha! I moved the lever up and now the lenses snap on perfectly, thanks!
The lever is supposed to be spring-loaded, should move freely, and should "home" to the upper position by itself. If it is not, your meter will not function properly. Based on your description and the photos above, I have to agree that your camera might best be used for parts and that a replacement KM might be a good idea. Yours has had a rough life.


(...probably one of the roughest looking cameras I have seen posted to this forum...)
