Looks to be working very well, nice and sharp, good exposure and a nice image too.

i have been giving MY 1975 KX and outing lately -- i got it from a Camera Club Member who sent it off to Ffordes with Pentax 6x7 and Olympus gear and they sent it back as 'not working, not saleable' - so he gave it to me ( Body Only) I had a look -- I found the Aperture Activating ring in lens mount was 'Stuck' compared with my ME Supers so I put ONE DROP of Sewing Machine Oil by Capillary action into it an pulled gently and it 'Budged' so I 'exercised it' then put on LENS and all WORKED and it has been working ever since Ha Ha !

been a member of Pentax Club since the Ron Spillman era! Got COMPUTERISED at last - DIGITISED? Taken the PLUNGE - BUT FILM STILL RULES !!!

You did very well there Peter, looks in fine fettle, mint,ish.
I paid the current going rate for mine, as I can't spend during this lockdown why not.
Of course mine is better than yours 😉😊
