First, unscrew the black shroud screws
lift shroud

Now lift this side of the shroud.

This way, it can be removed

Unscrew the bayonet, remove it and search for the small ball.

This time, it remains sticked to the bayonet.

Now, we have to unscrew the two clear metal cams.
two cams out

These are the two removed cams and the spacer that gets unattached.
tornar boleta

Return the small ball to its place, and leave some special grease on it.
install bayonet

Install the Leica-Pentax or the Leica-Nikon bayonet, the red dot in front the scale center.

The Leica-Nikon bayonet has the red dot slightly more to the right than the one at the picture.

Our Pentax camera ready with a Leica Elmarit.

Wait a moment, the lens is perfectly set to twelve o'clock.
shadow bad

But it shows the hood  twisted in respect the camera, and this kind of hood is fixed, you cannot rotate it.

It is only an aesthetic problem,  buy I'm not happy about it.
tiny screws

There are 3 really tiny screw around the hood : by unscrewing them, the square part of the hood can rotate freely and then be aligned perfectly .

Ok, much better now, the hood looks straight.
