Still sorting the ‘69 “nut and bolt restoration” I bought a year ago.
For some reason they neglected to attach the door lock cylinders to the latches. Locks work great - from the inside, just no way to unlock with a key. Anyone have a schematic of that assembly?
Or better yet the parts needed to connect the lock to the latch?
Any assistance will be appreciated.

The Fisher Body Manual will have diagrams of the door guts. Sounds like you may be missing the lock pawls and the little clips that retain them:

I am missing the pawls, clips and apparently “lock extensions” - From blurry Fisher Body manual.

OER could be a source but a search yields...no match for search terms.
At least now I have descriptive terms I can use.
Thanks for the ideas...

SouthBay2s, is this you, Adam?
You gave me a source for the headliner retainer strips a couple months ago - he had them, I got them, everything is fixed up there. I am remiss for not calling you with m gratitude. You’re a life saver.

Yes sir. Glad to hear you found those. Hard to find part these days.

The search function on the OER website is "lacking". I only currently sell the earlier ones, otherwise I would get you taken care of here. Not sure what the lock extensions are, but here are the pawls and clips:

I’ve said it before, you are my hero. I have a call in to Wayne - thanks to your reminder - hoping he has the pieces. The extension is in the cutaway drawing and seems to just be a short rod connecting the pawl to the latch.
Thanks again.
