Help Pentax sirius zoom lens won't zoom

Hi I bought a Pentax Sirius 70mm-210mm & adapter from eBay.
I feel stupid as there are only 2 parts that turn... One is aperture and other appears to be zoom, but when I turn ye main part it adjusts the focus & doesn't zoom.
Any ideas , have I missed something or is it just incompatible?ImageUploadedByTapatalk1348241574.146968.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1348241590.738193.jpg
It seems to act like a prime lens... Hopefully it's something easy .
