Pentax 67II Aperture Priority Mode Newbie Question

I was very fortunate to find a Pentax 67II with a couple lenses at a great price. I have a question about using the camera in aperture priority mode.

My assumption is to place the shutter mode button to "A" and then what I assume happens is when you change the aperture on the lens the shutter speed will adjust automatically.

I have put on both lenses and the shutter speed does not change when I modify the aperture on the lens.

The camera takes two CR123A batteries and they are brand new and the display on the camera and in the viewfinder work perfectly.

Am I overlooking something simple?

It does require an AE Prism. Everything you need to know is here Pentax 67II Manual.
