Part # for 67 viewfinder ring/glass?

Update: I got the part numbers I need from the local repair shop -- all fixed now. See post below.
------------------------

Hello all.

I lost the outer glass element and retaining ring for the AE pentaprism on my 67II.

Here's a photo of the prism without the missing parts:

Does anyone out there know the part number(s) I need? Thanks!

Oops -- forgot to follow up. The US Pentax parts department is really easy to deal with if you have the part numbers you need:

71081.Y01001 eye-cap
71081.Y00801 eyepiece tube
71003.L007 protect glass
71081.Y009 protection lens retainer

parts were shipped out the same day, UPS.

The eye-cap is a rubber part that stretches to fit around one end of the eyepiece tube. The glass goes inside the tube, and the retainer is a metal clip to hold the glass in place. The assembled eyepiece then screws into the pentaprism, problem solved.

How did you find the part numbers?

Since Pentax USA won't sell me a 67 lens, maybe I could order all the parts and assemble it, lol.

The shop where I originally purchased the body had a (somewhat confusing) assembly diagram on their computer. Once I had the part numbers it was pretty easy to do a google search for confirmation.

The part numbers above are from the Pentax invoice.

Good luck with the DIY lens

Phone numbers for all Pentax subsidiaries are available at:

http://www.pentax.com/subsidiary.html

In the US, you need to talk to Pentax Imaging (Colorado), not Pentax Medical (New Jersey). Not sure whether the other subsidiary offices have parts.

Thanks. This part is not visible on the Pentax US site. Or is it only available on phone from them?
