    I found this old camera in my Grandfather's closet the other day and it needs a new film advance lever. Does anyone know where I can find one?

    I would suggest trying ebay. They have a specific section for parts and repair on cameras. I was looking for a battery cover for a Pentax ME and that is where I found it.

    It looks to be the same as the ME, MG and MEF levers.So don't restrict your search to MX.

    Do you still have the retaining screw?

    I'd buy another one and use one or the other as a parts camera.
