Pretty much anything that is Pentax K mount will work. There are some exceptions with third party stuff that can range from not mounting at all or getting stuck on the camera.

It would be best if you could post some pictures of the lenses and mounts.

How to use older manual lenses:
The lens review database: Pentax Forum - Camera & Photography Community -
More about the various Pentax lenses: Pentax K-Mount Lenses Explained: The differences between various Pentax lens series

As Elliott noted most k-mount lenses will work within the capabilities of the lens. However, there are a few exceptions. If they are actual made by Pentax lenses, they will work. If they are third party post a picture or full description.
