Trying to get the OLD busted up lock out. The attached photos will show my progress. Except for the dis-assembly of the door latch, the outside looked as it does now without the cylinder there.
My thought is that the "pot metal" has corroded and is now stuck to the door requiring that it be "forcibly" removed.
Or am I missing something?
Some of the door locks have a set screw that holds the cylinder in the door. I am not familiar with the Tudor locks, but could that be one circled .
Best regards, John Page , Australia.
yep need to remove that little screw
There was no set screw nor threads of any kind in that area.
I managed to get the old lock out and it was as I figured, old, rotten pot metal which came out in pieces.
Installation of the new lock will be another "Model T Learning Curve".
Does anyone know where I can find an Illustrated Parts Breakdown of the passenger door on a 1926 Tudor?
I'm trying to determine what I need to repair this lock.
John, Lang's has the door lock https://www.modeltford.com/item/7023DL.aspx It is held in place by a set screw. See the pictures of my 1926 Tudor passenger door below.
Thanks! It looks as if the set screw actually "rides" in the access hole in the door. True?
My lock collar has been "driven inward" so I will have to push it into position from the inside of the door in order to install the set screw which I found at Brattons'. If the set screw holds the lock in place then all is right with the world!
Once again, thanks John. Looks like a nice car!
The lock on the 24-25 closed cars is held in the same way. Been there and done the same thing on my 25 Coupe.
John Aldrich, the lock body needs to be installed from the outside. So if necessary, repair the door sheet metal to get the outer surface correct. The set screw is just a 10x32. My entire assembly was missing, so I had to shorten a screw for proper fit. If memory serves me correctly, the lock body has a flat the screw contacts to make it secure, so the screw must be fitted correctly.
