K1000 focus screen

Hi, all, I'm new to the forum and recently have just started to get back into photography. I have a Spotmatic F and a K1000 (which I just got). The K1000's foam absorber recently started to deteriorate and I'm going to have to send it in for cleaning and repair. While it's in there I was wondering if I can have the focus screen changed. My dad had a Pentax which I thought was a K1000 but the focus screen on it was the "split screen" type which I prefer. Does anyone know if this can be done? Thanks in advance.

Ok, it seems that I've found the answer to my own question. Yes, it seems that I can get a split screen focus. I have the microprism one but it's a bit harder on my 42 year old eyes!
