    If it's not locking it's probably missing the locking locking spring.

    The locking spring is right under the black plate beneath the RW knob. The plate is held in place
    with a "C" clip. When that's removed, the plate can be lifted off and you should see two springs, one coil spring and a spring that does the actual locking looks a lot like a hairpin and is at about 12-1 o'clock.

    The lever is right under the black plate beneath the RW knob.

    Is that something I can replace, or is it better to send it off?

    the winding knob doesn't lock like the other one.
    So, the 2 cameras are different, right? Someone changed the rewind fork for a similar model, but different. It shouldn't be a problem, but you might want to talk with an expert repairer and see what he says.
    My cameras:
    Fed 2
    Zenit 11, 12XP
    Nikon F4, F4S, F401S, F601, F801, F801S, F50, F55, F60, F65, F70, F75, F80, F90, F90X, EL2, FE, FM, FG, FG-20, EM

    When the rewind knob came apart on my FE, I managed to find all of hte pieces and it took a repairman about 3.5 minutes to put it back toegther again. I, for some odd reason, could not get it back together properly despite several attempts.

    Hee, hee.
    I was just editing the post with a bit more detail when you asked that one.. It's not hard to do. Unscrew the knob, remove the "C" clip & the plate lifts off. Shouldn't be more than 5 minutes.
    Two things to be aware of though. The "C" clip and locking spring can both join all the lost socks in the 4th dimension when they launch.
    If you would like I can replace the spring and fix up the lever for you. I'm thinking $10.00 & you pick up shipping both ways.

    PM me if you would like.
