compartment doors

Thought someone out there might be interested in an exploded view of the compartment door locks from my '69. I opened one up to see if i could retrofit the cylinder and handel from a new one i bought at Lowes (garage door handle) no luck. The new handle set-up will work as a unit, though it is not the same as the original and will require some modification. anyhow, here is the pic for anyone interested.

Have you tried a Marine store for your replacement locks? I was in one yesterday and the had a T handle lock that looked very much like the one you have pictured above. I think the price was less the $10.00. Just another possible source.

Removing the pin?

Hi Dave,

Any suggestions on removing the pin that's in the exploded photo you provided? I tried lubricating it and tapping it out with a nail set, but the pin seemed like it was starting to mushroom, so I stopped.
