Using non AF lenses on D70 - Photography

It looks like there are two pins sticking out of the lens mount on the D70. One to lock the lens to the mount, and one to engage the autofocus. I know I have to use the lens in Manual mode (M on the function dial), but should I also move the manual/auto focus lever next to mount to manual to retract that coupling pin to take the tension off it? And for the life of me, I can't figure out where that pin engages the AF lens. Thanks. Sheldon net...

    It looks like there are two pins sticking out of the lens mount on the D70.
    One to lock the lens to the mount, and one to engage the autofocus. I know
    I have to use the lens in Manual mode (M on the function dial), but should I
    also move the manual/auto focus lever next to mount to manual to retract
    that coupling pin to take the tension off it?

    And for the life of me, I can't figure out where that pin engages the AF
    lens.

    Thanks.

    Correct, just pop the kit lens off and have a look for yourself.
