KT Lockset

Hi everyone,

we bought a '76 Tradewind last summer, and are about to head off on a year-long (or maybe longer) adventure. After I recently got locked inside due to a broken cam, (green arrow) I took the KT lockset out and had the cam rewelded.

Before I reinstall the lockset, I was wondering if anyone can tell what these two bolts do, and how they should be adjusted. One has a philips head and can be set tight against the shaft which the inner handle turns. In the second photo, the red arrow points to the end of it.

The other has a small hex head and seems to be set against the locking mechanism shaft.

Thanks!

The allen screw applies pressure to the vertical locking shaft so that it cannot move by itself.

There is a spring and a small ball, or should be, on the other side of that allen screw.

The ball and spring are a detent mechanism. Which holds the vertical shaft in either the locked or unlocked position.

How should the other bolt be adjusted? Tight against the handle shaft?
