: I really need to find someone who can help me find gaskets for my Pentax K1000. I also would like to find a book that would help me with the cleaning that my camera really needs. Modern technology just cannot compare with the pictures I have taken with this camera. I need it restored. I also need to know what battery that it needs. I was smart enough to remove it, but not smart enough to write down what it was.
If by gaskets you mean the felt for light trap try
Fargo Enterprises www.fargo-ent.com
If your day job is a camera repair person by all means take it apart and fixit. If not pay the money and have a proper job done which should include a guarantee which right off is more than you could offer.
www.essexcamera.com is a reasonable place which seems to get a lot of repeat mentions on these boards.
The battery for the K1000 is a Silver Oxide MS76
