Release Cam For Pentax K1000

Hi there

I was wondering if it is possible to source a new or not-too-worn release cam for Pentax K1000. I can't get fast shutter speeds to work on my Spotmatic F because it has worn release cam. I thought if only I could get my hands on a new Type A or Type C release cam for Pentax K1000 I could cure my SP F. Thanks for advice!

The camera has been out of production for 22 years or so. I seriously doubt you'll be able find parts new other than items like rewind cranks. Your best be is to find a donor parts camera with low mileage on it.
