Question about Pentax K1000 35mm SLR Camera
If the threads are not stripped on the knob or shaft, just screw it on clock-wise.
If the threads are stripped on the shaft, it must be replaced, same with knob.
To replace the shaft (if the knob is off) just pull it down in the film compartment. now there is a spring to hold the shaft up or down if the new shaft has a beveled shoulder just turn the shaft while pushing it back up. If no beveled shoulder is on the shaft then with a long needle or pin hold the spring back while pushing the shaft back up. Don't bend the spring. just move it out of the way.
