Hi Gary. I can fit the Eyepiece Adapter (DK-22) easily by simply removing the standard Eyecup (DK-21). That's not the problem.
The Rubber Eyecap (DK-19) will fit over the very small protrusion on the back of the Adapter but there is no method of retaining it (other perhaps Superglue). I've done some more searching and what I think I now need is Nikon Finder Eyepiece for FM, FE & FA Series Cameras (2925). It needs something that will screw into the Adapter to retain the rubber eyecap and from what I can see this is it??? However, it seems next to impossible to be sure as I can't find the internal diameter of the adapter threads and therefore the diameterof the male piece that is needed to screw into it.
The poster who said they had fitted this makes no mention of additional parts but I think they are required... I have checked and what I received were correct - no missing parts.
If I'm missing something obvious I hope someone will put me right.
