Ricoh KR-5 Focus Screen in K20D?

Does anyone know if the KR-5's focus screen will fit the K20D? I can't locate a service manual to check dimensions. I know the K1000 that jinfinance uses doesn't require shims, but not sure about their QC. I used a KR-5 "back in the day" and found it to focus easily as the diagonal work well in most camer planes.

For that matter, what other SLR focus screens will fit the K20D w/o shims or modification other than some minor filing?

I figure that with so many film bodies out there, I might try to find an inop one to scavenge.

The width and length would have to be cut down. I don't believe any of the film camera screens are a drop in fit.
