Has anyone here ever repaired a door latch?
I have a set ($200 smackers U.S. each for new aftermarket L.M.C.
Trucks) and they are worn clean through where the fat part of the end
of the door striker pin makes contact.
Has anyone had success welding and grinding smooth or should I wait
until a better donor vehicle comes to our scrap yard? I just happen
to have two parts vehicles here on the property but the door latches
are munched too.
Things low down this time of the year at my favourite place. It is a
place where you bring you own tools and remove what you want. You
should see this. Right now there is a 15ft high wall of flattened
vehicles protecting the yard from the cold NorWesters until spring
when they will chip and ship the entire wall for recycling.
<sigh>Unless something changes this year there won't be many new
candidates for a long while.</sigh>
Thanks to all who respond.
