Does anyone out there have one with a lock cylinder and broken handle that would be willing to sell? Or any other suggestion on what to do?
Steve, I sold the L-77 lock and handle on eBay. I first made mention of them here on this thread:
Note that I sold one handle to a forums member.
There was a lengthy discussion of the L-77 on these forums which was unfortunately deleted when the Parts forum was closed and deleted. I believe there was mention of the Hurd cylinder in that thread. I mentioned the loss of that information in post #11 of this thread:
The RV shop where I found the obsolete lock and handles did not have any replacement lock cylinders for the L-77.
If you locate a source, please pass it along.
