I think I have 2 L300 locks in the garage. If I remember correctly, they are both complete with keys. Let me know if you still need one. Steve 269-317-2606

L-300 parts

i found an rv repair man that helped me w/ needing some L-400 parts for my avion. anyway he had a huge box of misc. L-300 parts & pieces & some used complete units, i told him i would tell anyone looking. his name is Bob & can be reached at 419-423-1221, the guys still has a small mom & pop repair place & he doesn't throw anything away. THAT"S GOOD FOR US!

P.S. i need some help finding info on a L-77 i found, it is a different variation, and has a thumb lever latch & the handle does not move like the normal airstream L-77. it also has a locking pin that moves on the inside which is nice, anyway 2 parts are missing & i don't know what they look like. THANKS i have started a new thread if anyone has info THANKS AGAIN!

Bargmann apparently let the L-300 go out of production in 2010.

VTS has re-conditioned ones, a few at a time ($220). I replaced one on the last Silver Streak and am resisting replacing it on this one. It was well worthwhile to remove it and soak it down with some Schaeffer's #190 Penetro. That free'd up the action quite well, even though the unit is about worn out.

Here are some part numbers found on the SS Mailing List:

The model number is L-300;

* outside/inside assembly (Item 31-8203);

* cylinder only (Item 31-8208);

* outside assembly, which is the outside plate plus the locking mechanism
(Item 31-8714);

* inside assembly (Item 31-8713)

* rebuilding kit (Item 31-8226)

As the interior door handle on mine is loose and "droops" I'll try replacing the springs and see if it keeps me from being locked out.

Found a couple of handy descriptions:

Are you talking about the factory door handle? Is it worn out or just the handle sagging?

On mine, the handle would not fully go back to the middle would flop down kind of like the old cars of the 1930's and 1940's would had to manually move it each time. If you take the handle apart, there are 2 springs in the assembly. I went down to the hardware store, bought two springs the same diameter...they were long so I cut them down in length, replaced and it works like new.

A little update to the spring job. After reading this thread I figured I'd get the slop out of my handle along with the sticky "down" position. Got it apart and stretched the springs just to see what happened. They pushed the cam, like a short popsicle stick, back into position, but when I trial fitted the mech it still stuck.

Finally found a slot had been cut into the cam by the surface it rides against. Pop off the circlip and turn the cam around to put a new surface against the mechanism. Works fine, but the springs are so shot I'm replacing them anyway.

Doug, I think they are 1/4" x about 1 1/2" long pusher springs, no ends to worry about. Hope this helps somebody else that was pulling their hair out wondering what the heck?

My inside handle has also developed "slop" and it concerns me that I may get either locked in or out.
There is no name anywhere in this lock, how do I find out what type it is?
