A manual for the Pellix is here:
The meter is not like the TL, as the meter cell is a pretty small spot behind the mirror in front of the film on the Pellix. Can't recall if the TL metering pattern is like the FT(b), but those bodies used a 12% center rectangle to meter through a half-silvered section (I believe up in the condenser below the pentaprism) to pick off the metering light. The FT and TL models had moving mirrors. The Pellix is more of a spot meter according to the instructions. You can see the darker center metering rectangle on the FTb. You'd also have to calibrate differently for the mirror losses on the Pellix.
I used to have the booster meter shown in the manual's accessories listing in a version for my FTb bodies, a cool accessory if you shoot low light and can find one in working condition, but they were pretty rare. Look around the area where you found the camera and if you find one, grab it.
