SMC Pentax-A 1:4.7-5.6, 80-200

I bought a Pentax MX camera sometimes stumbles, but my biggest problem is with a lens SMC Pentax-A 1:4.7-5.6, 80-200, is in parts, this is not armed and need instructions for how to build it. I need your help to do this and I no want to die in a drawer, Thanks for your time and help friends. PS: if you have a service manual for the camera I would also be useful.

That lens costs less than 30 dollars on Ebay... probably not worth fixing. You can't put a lens together if you don't know what you're doing... you'd have to send it to a specialist and they'd charge you way more than it is worth.

If you just want a lens to play with your new camera, Ebay always has old kit lenses (28-70, 28-80, 28-90) for 10-25 dollars. I know one in particular - the Sigma UC 28-70mm - is actually not a bad lens, it can take decent pictures. Can sometimes be found for under 10 dollars...
