K1000 Repair Help

Does anyone have any idea how I can put the spindle that holds the film and connects the rewind lever back into my K1000? Thanks in advance. J

There is a few ways to see this. I asked about a service manual for my K1000 a year ago. Here's a website with the service manual as a downloadable .pdf It's under the heading, "And, courtesy of " The second entry.

My thread on the subject:

Hope this helps.

If you can't get the spindle to push back the internal spring, you can buy a set of feeler gauges, pick one thin enough to wrap around the spindle, and cut a small section to use to jimmy the spindle up into place.
