1928 Briggs Fordor door latch repair or replacement. Help wanted.
Posted 08 March 2013 - 06:33 AM
The door will open from the outside, however.
A cursory inspection (after fighting with the door panel for an hour or so) reveals that you can move the
little flapper up and down with NO effect on the latch rod.
Any suggestions? Can this be repaired or adjusted in some way or do I need to find and replace the entire latch mechanism?
If so, anyone out there have one?
Any and all help, gratefully appreciated.

Remove the latch and inspect it for broken parts. Many parts houses have replacement parts for springs, rods, pins, etc.. Snyder's has a great catalog that shows lots of sketches of actual parts. If you need the whole assembly, the wanted section, MAFCA, Fordbarn, and other sites are available to help. Good luck.
