Seeking Battery Cap for An Oldie but Goodie: Spotmatic II

Trying to find a Battery Cap / Cover for a Spotmatic II. If I recall correctly -- its been YEARS so I could be WRONG -- the Pentax K1000 is essentially the Spotmatc II with a different Lens mount. Would the Battery Cover for the K1000 fit the Spotmatic II?? I inherited the Spotmatc II but it is minus the battery Cap / Cover. The camera appears to be in good shape and was well taken care of. The lens 55mm f/1.8 is clean, as is the 200mm f/4.0. I've seen Battery caps for the K1000 but none for the SPII. Are there any silver oxide batteries that will fit the SPII are all of them Zinc Air Batteries??

While I am here the camera at some point probably needs to be to be serviced. Any help you could provide in rehabilitating this Oldie but Goodie would be appreciated.

I have several parts Spotties. PM me your mailing address and I'll mail you a battery cover (assuming they're not already gone ).
