Chesler/Bargman locks on 1966 TradeWind
Hoping someone with more experience can help with this one.
My AS has what I believe to be a Chesler T-5 lockset. This setup has a smooth knob on the exterior and interior of the entry door. Unfortunately my wife's arthritic hands make it difficult for her to open the door, especially from the inside. As a safety precaution, I'd like to swap out the interior knob for a paddle-style lever. Does anyone know if this is feasible without swapping the entire assembly? And if so, any idea where I'd find one of these? My cursory web search seemed to indicate discontinuation on most of these type parts.
The existing set looks similar to the first photo and the desired interior would be something like the second. Thanks in advance for any help.
