Mamiya Sekor DSX 1000 with Takumar lenses

Hi, I have a Mamiya Sekor DSX 1000 and a few Super-Takumar lenses. I am having issues with the combination. The DSX 1000 is a screw mount camera but with proprietary open aperture metering. The Super-Takumar lenses do not have the right "pin" to engage the metering system. Is there a way to do stop down metering with the combo? Even at wide open aperture (F1.8), the cameras metering tell me to use 1/2 second shutter in a not poorly lit frame. Even with the lens in "M" (Stop down) mode, I believe the camera thinks the aperture is at F16, even if its actually wide open.   Thank you.
