Pb 4 Bellows and N90s

I need some help, I have an N90s and I just got the pb4 bellows and it seems stupid but I can't attach the body to the bellows, does anyone know if they aren't made for eachother? Or if I need to get some piece that will adapt the bellows to the camera?

Thanks for any help!

Bob - I am still trying to find a way to mount 39mm Leica screw mount EL Nikkors and Rodenstocks on extension tubes ( without metering prong but with the AI ridge) to do close-ups with my FM3a. I want to accomplish stop down, TTL flash and/or metering. My old F/Leica multiphot adapter cannot be mounted on non-AI cameras & accessories without damaging them. I have spent a lot of time on this and I am getting nowhere.

Thanks Ron - I must have misunderstood the Nikon User's Manual - maybe because the adapter does not have a lever that links the aperture to light meter it won't damage my FM3a or other AI cameras. I will take the adapter it to a store and try it on a used AI extension tube first - Tom

Ron -I bought a used PK-13 which works fine with the the EL-F adapter but as expected the extension is not enough for my discontinued APO 75mm Rodagon R. I have switched from an FM3a to an old N8008s which has a brighter viewfinder and the TTL flash seems to work with the set-up. I just ordered an old Novoflex bellows that takes 39mm screw mount lenses but I have to search for an Nikon adapter for the camera end.
