I have an old Series E 50mm f1.8 lens from the 1980's. Can I mount this lens on the D70 in unmetered manual without causing harm to the D70?

I also have a Kiron 70-210 f4 lens from the same era that is stamped Nikon AI on the apeture ring. I assume from having read previous posts that it can be safely mounted on the D70.

One last question regarding the Kiron lens. It has a zoom lock that was nifty when it worked, but now it is locked in the 210mm position. Does aybody have any ideas on how to get it unlocked again? I have removed the covering over the lock switch and tinkered a little, but with no success. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
