I spent the past week snaking out the kitchen sink, swapping out the disposal and reworking the plumbing beneath. Ended it with a chiropractor visit, snap crackle pop.

Think I'm almost ready for the Ks2 solenoid surgery!

In the meantime I do have plenty of old-school lenses that do nice work, from the 17-28 fisheye to the A200/4. My DA lenses are getting impatient though..

Maybe your chiropractor can help with the solenoid as well
I had tried with my osteopath but his path went the wrong way...

I think that the last modification of the solenoid was done quite recently (to name it "Generation 3" would be correct) But I have no idea when they did it and no idea about serial numbers (K-70 only!)


Your K-S2 had the first modification, i.e. "Generation-2"
This was already better (introduced Dec. 2015) but hit a few with ABF.
It was better but not perfect yet

See:
Ok....thanks for clarification. If the latest K-70's have the most recent solenoid , then maybe I will entertain the idea of getting one to replace my earlier beater K-S2 when and if it finally dies. I wish there was some data about the serial number range though , covering an approximate range of serial numbers with the gen three solenoid for the K-70.
Thanks for all your details and dedicated investigation and work.
One of these days I need to Pay-up here on PF so I can post some images of this K-S2'S solenoid from late in the lineage to verify that it is an actual gen 2 .

I took a slightly different path and decided to forego the Bone Crunchers and went straight for a simple increse of alchohol , and just before surgery a minor tranquilizer ! Did wonders for the anxiety and shakey hands , with the only noticeable side effect being a much improved mood , and perfect soldering !
