How does the main-door hold-back work?
The main door hold back is mounted on the shell of the trailer and operates a spring loaded lever that hold the main door to the shell. The main door has some kind of plastic "catch" that joins with the main door hold back.
Mine, however, is broken and I have no idea what it looks like. The 1975 service manual has a diagram of the main door hold back but not the main door catch. Does anybody have a photo of the main door catch or know where I can find one?
Also in the last photo here notice that the PO apparently installed an aftermarket interior latch. Does anyone know whether this interior latch is standard or not? I assume not. Anybody have photos of a 1975 standard Ambassador main door set-up inside and outside?
