KT Lock dis/ re- assembly

I have 2 KT locks that I need to make into one. The first is a complete lock with a broken latch flange on the lock housing body, with key, from my 71 Trade Wind. The second is a good body and latch with no mechanism other than the tumblers, and no key, from a 70's Argosy.

I am looking for any advice on disassembly and reassembly so that hopefully I end up with one complete working lock.

Thanks,
Marshall

Parts stocking dealer usually have the KT in stock.

However, it's not uncommon to have them on back order as Airstream only makes a very few at a time.

KT locks, within reason, can be repaired by someone that has experience with that lock, and of course the proper parts as well.

Repairs are not cheap, but they are cheaper than a new KT lock.

All the parts are available, except the lock casting itself.

Any idea who might rebuild a KT lock assembly?

The return spring on the handle on my broke and the handle flaps all the time. I took it apart but the spring pins are corroded into the shaft and my wife is pressing me to go traveling the end of June.
