Got a 1980 vette, my dream car from the 80's, got lots of work to do
on her, but a labor of love anyway........ So said......
Pending problem is....
Passenger door handle (I'm in Australia, so you people in the States,
this would be the drivers door !) Anyway, the outside handle was a bit
temperamental at times...... so.... I lubricated the mechanism,
handles and whatever else was viewable with grease, oil and whatever,
and both inside and outside handles rock like Elvis.... However....
After the great lubrication fiasco... The inside handle works like a
charm, but the outside handle doesn't want to play..... No folks, it
now only returns to 3 quarters up and sits looking stupid half-way in
and refuses to open the door, but the inside handle works a treat and
from the inside is now the only way I can open the damn door....
I did what I thought was the right thing for my beloved baby, but she
not only became more temperamental, but also broke even more...
Anyone with a similar experience (and how you rectified it) with
elaboration on how you remedied the problem will greatly be
P.S. There's some type of adjustment on the lever from the handle
(inside the door), but, how the 'ell do you get the 'andle off...
It's like working on one of those "magic cube" thingies that we had in
the 80's except I worked that one out, but removing the outside door
handle goes beyond that....
