K-S1: how to get correct metering with a M42 lens thru viewfinder?

I'm trying to use an old Helios m42 lens on my K-S1. In live view the camera meters correctly, but when I shoot through the viewfinder it constantly overexposes. I switched to M mode and center-weighted metering and press the green button before pressing the shutter button. It doesn't help. What am I doing wrong?

ANSWER:
Pentax K-S1
