Small screws in SMC Takumar 55mm 1.8

Hi all,

My SMC Takumar 1.8 is missing the 3 small screws that attach the front hood to the rest of the body (the ones you see after removing the front ring that reads "SMC Takumar 1:1.8/55 XXXXXXXX Asahi Opt. CO, Japan"). Does anybody know where I can get those or what size they are?

Thanks,

Sergy

I actually need the same screws for my SMC Takumar 55mm f.2. I'd be interested to know the answer.

Sorry, I have the Takumar repair manual with parts lists, but I won't be back home to check it until June...

Hi, Serge
I have the Super Tak service manual and exploded diagrams.
There were variants of the 1:1.8 and 1:2 55mm
Maybe your SMC 1:1.8 55mm (introduced 1971) is like the latest Super Tak 1:2 55mm based on an old catalog here that shows both.
Part Number 37103
Anyway in each variant of 371 series, the cover frame (15) seems to be screwed to the interior helicoid (16) by 3 screws in the screw list:
Flat Medium 1.4 X 3.5 Black Nickel
