I searched and searched and searched...

How problematic would be replacing a PL-mount installed on an older Nikon lens with a standard AiS mount?

I know the opposite solution is possible (albeit quite expensive). There are various adapters to replace Nikon standard F-mount with various professional adapters and knock-offs for use on cinematographic "brains". But I cannot find anywhere if a lens that has already been fitted with a PL-mount can be restored back to a normal Ai-S. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
