Kalimar are no longer in business so you can't return it to them I'd take it to a local repair shop and get a quote.

Does this lens have a t-mount?

If someone is selling this "old" lens, you should ask him (her) what kind of mount it has. These lenses are made for different brands. Most of the time you also can buy an adapter to fit it on your camera. No problem most adapters don't give trough the AF info, because this lens is an manual focus lens. More interesting is to know if your camera can work with manual lenses. Because most of the time you also have to set everything by hand. Like aperture shutter time and so on. So check the manual if it can, to avoid disappointment after you bought this thing. Also read what others think about this lens.

How can i get my kalimar auto zoom lens fit my canon eos 650

Don't know but I just bought a kalimar 135mm f2.8 lens on eBay and it has a threaded mount that is not T mount and is not M42 mount? I am hoping there is an adapter somewhere out there as it seems like a very well made Japanese lens! If you figure it out let me know?

Kalimar 500mm lens

With the proper T-mount adapter this lens will fit just about any camera, film or digital, with an interchangeable lens. However you will not get autofocus, and most likely will lose the camera's autoexposure capabilities as well.

What does a kalimar 500mm F8.0 preset lens with tripod mount,what cameras will it fit? thankyou,bear.

The lens in question is not brand specific. Instead you use T2 mount adaptors to fit whichever SLR camera you wish to use with it.

T2 mounts can be purchased widely online, just choose whichever one fits your camera mount.

My Canon EFS 17-85 MM is locked at the 17 MM position (although it doesn't have a "locked" feature. What is the problem?

Try taking the lens off AF mode and manually turning it and trying to focus. If that doesn't help then it sound like you have an internal fault.

Broken Lens Cover Mechanism

I would caution against trying to take cameras apart. Take it to a repairer who has the tools, knowledge and experience to do it properly. They also check timings and metering.

There are some resources here, and also look at the video tab.
