Pentax 67ii timer process query

Hi, I recently got a Pentax 67ii and have trouble understanding how to use timer process mode .

1) Do I need to use AE prism finder (it's attached to the body) and do I need to have a film loaded?

2) Does shutter speed dial need to be set ?

3) If I press shutter button (fully, I guess) , then the exposure completes when time is over (dial setting ) even if exposure lever is not pushed back to original position?

wondering what I am doing wrong.

thanks and have a nice one

I got it serviced and it works. Updating here for anyone interested in this in future:
I got info from person on FB who saw my post and replied.
1) Set the aperture after switching on camera
2) wind the film
3) Prism finder is not needed
4) It works even without film
5) set exposure mode to B
6) push out time exposure ( PS time) lever button
7) press shutter button fully - shutter will open
8) push time exposure button back
9) shutter will close
Tested my camera and this is how it is working now.
