Elf Bus E350 Corbeil door lock
Ok, I leave the images in the album for now. May be a moderator can help out here.
Got a lock from a grumman truck door. Talking about sturdy hardware. Removed the old driver bus closing mechanism and cleaned the old grease out of the Grumman hardware. I wanted a pin in the bottom and top to minimize wind noise and vibration. Added extra mounting holes in the Grumman lock and drilled and tapped holes in the door. The latch slide on the bottom has a slight angle so that during closing the door get pulled closer. The top has a standoff since it has to be behind the top door seal. Welded a piece in the drawbar to make it longer and made a rectangular hole in the first step. So far seems to work good. So far no key mechanism. Just take the handle and square shaft out. Imges follow tomorrow, It got to dark to make proper shots.
