If you look at this site, about half way down (PN 1343380 or 1360839) you will find a Hurd cylinder that looks like a replacement. http://www.studebakerclubs.com/stelf...osedBodies.htm
Thanks for the tip. Easy to find if you know the name!

Don--Not having seen the cylinder out of the lock, I didn't know what it would look like. My understanding was the Hurd was used in the Studebaker until the late forties and went to Ford in the fifties. Thanks

It looks just like the one I totally disassembled. I was lucky to get enough of the little springs and buttons back in it to give the locksmith something to work with.
You might want to order one, be sure you can return it if it's not right.

Or better yet,l take it to a different locksmith. I think if you give him the mfg name he should be able to order parts.

as Andy stated if you want a working lock you will have to go the replacement route. i had my lock destroyed when a drugie thought he could get into my motor home. i lucked out on my lock. i found a locksmith with a complete lock. he had it for a long time and he was happy to sell me the lock. i was darn happy to buy it. the drugie relocated to Ohio before i could get a piece of his zw8x.

A source for the L-77 lock cylinder

I just ran across this ad for a company that claims to have the L-77 lock cylinder for $3.60 and thought I'd pass it on to those in search of same.

Lightbulb Vintage Trailer Locks

Here's a page I put together to help everyone identify their locks. It is a work in progress, but it should help. Some of these were never used on Airstreams...

Steve, Thanks for the breakdown on the locks and when they became obsolete. I have an Avion that uses that first L-400 lock. I was able to find parts for it about a year ago. Some long time RV dealers have old stock on the shelves, Some dealers trash it and write it off when it fails to sell after a certain time period.

The KT locks were used from 1970 thru and including 1977 modesl.

They are still available new.

Repair parts for them are not cheap, but they are available.

A new KT lock from Airstream uses a little bit different tumbler. That tumbler will not fit the original KT locks. We had some tumblers modified to work with the orignal KT's.

From the 78 models to about 84, Airstream used a Keeler Brass lock. It's and parts for it, are no longer available.

Then in about 85 Airstream went to a GM lock, (not general motors). They made adapter plates so you could replace the obsolete Keeler Brass lock.

Andy

Just in case anybody stumbles across this thread..

We have a '79, and had no keys. This part right here fit perfectly, took about 20 minutes. Now have a proper, factory lock.

That's a key and cylinder for a Keeler Brass Company (KBC) lock (vertical lock orientation). That cylinder is available from most RV dealers. The cylinder for the old KT locks (horizontal lock orientation) is not available.
