Pentax ME

Hi guys,
I'm looking for a replacement little round cap that sits on top of the film advance lever on my Pentax ME.
Can anyone advise of a possible supplier?
Regards skibiker.

Keep your eyes online. $10 on the auction site right now for *just* the wind lever cap. You could find a broken ME for about that much and have even more extra parts.

AS above, keep an eye on ebay, and op-shops for a broken ME

Or even a broken MX/MV/ME Super and whatever else Pentax had out around that time.
I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of them shared the same part.

Just remember that its got a left hand thread so you have to unscrew it clockwise. Sometimes you can undo it by putting on a rubber glove and using your thumb on the top of the cover to unscrew it.

The cap from an MX will not fit, it has a different screw. One from an MV may do.
