    I am in need of a Nikon FE2 (Meter Coupling Lever Spring).
    Do you know where I can find one?
    I’ve had no luck yet.

    The repair manual states it is part #1K225-075-1
    It’s auxiliary number is 207.

    Thanks for any help…………………

    Check with fixinator He may have a somewhat dead FM/FE/FM2 thaat he wouldn't mind pulling a spring from.

    I'll dig through the parts box tonight or tomorrow and let you know, if one is in there it is yours.

    That would be great if you have one...

    I know I can buy a busted up body to try to find one.
    But it' kind of like putting a broke shock absorber on your car.
    New would great, used would cool.
    Beggars can't be chosers.

    Do you know if a spring from another Nikon would fit it??????

    Can you post a photo of what it is supposed to look like? I have the FE2 in front of me but can't find any reference of what/where it is.

    It is seemingly complete, but the winder and shutter dial have been disassembled. I can send the entire camera to you. PM your address if that sounds good.

    Oh man….
    I bit the bullet yesterday & bought a used body from K.E.H.

    It’s all good.
    If you can pull the parts I need to salvage it.
    I’ll have two of them!
    You could fit these parts in a envelope.

    Attached are jpg of the parts I need to fix it.
    If you have them, we’ll figure out how to touch bases.

    I bought a brand new meter coupling spring off eBay UK a few months ago and fixed my FE2. The original spring broke, and it was dead easy to replace with patience. Paid $10 for the spring.
