SMC PENTAX AF ZOOM F2.8 35-70mm

I'm fairly new at working on lenses etc but recently undertook renovating one of these old beasts and it was very interesting I just wondered out of interest if anyone knows where a motor and circuit board might be found (I dont want to spend much as it only stands me at 19) details of renovation here: Lenses and photo collectible items it would be a great project to try and bring the autofocus back to life sometime, the photo here is our old dog oblivious to the fact that the lens is more than 4 x her age....

KF

Quite rightly noted, I think its mount is a KF (not K, KA, or KA F,) Which was only made to fit the ME-F (please correct me if I get anything wrong) I use it as a manual on my k-30 & k-s1, as i've just started to re-ignite my interest in photography, I also like to use my old film slr's occasionally too, my next lens renovation will be a yashinon auto f2 m-42 lens, looking forward to seeing what it's like, seen some interesting articles.
