Front group SMC K 200mm F4 and Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 200mm F4 interchangable?

Does anybody know whether the front group of these lenses can be changed among them? It easily screws of from the Takumar and since the SMC K has basically the same design apart from mount and outer appearance I would expect it would be possible. I have a wonky focussing ring on a optically pristine Takumar and I am looking at a cheap SMC K that has a fungus infested front element.

Thanks but shipping would just make it expensive again. I missed out on the SMC K because i forgot the time. (E-bay auction). So it's not really relevant now. I'll find a new one at some point.
