New member using an old 6X7

Hi Guys (and Gals?)
Just stumpled into this forum of which I knew nothing until yesterday when I read a thread on P67 Gas on RFF. Im an APUG'er; RFF'er an a LFPF'er mostly reading and not so much a poster for a long time (children you know )
Among others I shoot an old Pentax 6X7 to which I have this love/hate relationship. I love the size of the negs, the image quality and the handling of this big SLR but i hate the very dim viewfinder and the fact that i t might need a repair/replacement og the rear curtain brake anytime soon I did get a replacement screen to brighten up the viewfinder but I do¨'t know whether Id have the replacement don or just get a 67II instead. Talking lenses im restricted to a 45/4, 75/4,5 and a 90/2,8 since my 165/2,8 broke into pieces a long time ago
Best regards
