LX parts compatibility from other models?

An LX needing a winder knob ( asa rating dial and tab are still there) but needing the flip down winder and the closing cap immediately under the camera body etc as well as the other small closing cap also under the camera body under the film advance winder.

And I was wondering, given the paucity of parts for the LX, what other models might supply parts to get the camera working?

I recall reading that the ME might have some compatible parts, but cant locate the article.

Thanks for any tips

Just looked up the CORRECT name for the missing part-


But also noticed that I am missing the thin black disc that has the raised/silvered ASA 4x. 2x. 1/2x. 1/4x. numerals as well.

I checked it with an ME Super knob and it is compatible, but have a bit of an over hang.
Just in case... the MG is a no since the arrangement is reversed
