I have a 72 sovereign
and have been trying to get the interior handle off the lock mechanism for a week now. I have spoken with one guy from the forum who had a similar issue but still not having much luck. I'm going to attach a few pics hoping that someone would have the answer. Basically the set screw was stripped so I had to drill it out. It was hard to tell how deep it went so I may have gone deeper or not deep enough - dont know, but i'm afraid to go any deeper or larger in fear of drilling through the rod that the handle fits onto. I have used lubricants and heat and that handle does not want to budge.My understanding is that it could have a square shaft under it so in that case it would not twist off - just pull straight off. I was hoping to take it of to have it sandblasted and to take to a locksmith for keys. What am I missing here??
