50 Custom being parted out. Says he's keeping the body but not the front clip:
https://nh.craigslist.org/pts/d/hudson ... es-custom/7157931051.html

Now that I just posted that, I see it's listed as totally for sale too here:
https://nh.craigslist.org/cto/d/hudson ... -custom-8/7161995001.html

Seems like an abandoned rat rod project that never actually started.

Alright, she locks! The u joints worked, though I'd go a size up next time if I'd do it over again to eliminate the corner filing. I went with my thought above around u joint placement, ie close to the tumbler assembly, and there were no issues and also room for error also if something goes wrong cutting/grinding.

Unfortunately one of my eBay door locks the tumbler just pulls out pending what way I turn it. It locks and holds tight so I just have to be careful about that when I unlock I guess. Another issue is my passenger side lock is very temperamental in general. The key doesn't seem to have the torque to lock it, and the rubber end is too shallow to allow the locking tab to go far enough down to lock the car. So I can get it to lock with pliers to reach below the wood grain trim, but it also takes convincing. I'll have to open up the door again sometime I guess and maybe remove the whole lock assembly to see why it's not locking easily.

Any thoughts on u-joint placement before I start cutting? I was thinking basically as close as I can get it to the tumbler housing because that seems to be close to the intersection of a level rod and the straight through line of the tumbler housing.


This was a "need an extra hand" type of picture but luckily the phone balanced in the upper door access.

Thanks Howard! I was about to get new ones but I think I'll give that a try to see how it goes. Given it's a daily driver in the NE I also like the idea of avoiding pot metal joints and opting for something a bit stronger, at least for unseen door innards. I'll report back about how it goes.

Great, that is very helpful! It seems like I'll need to just buy a new kit with the joints and stepped down shaft.

Thanks a bunch!

So I've heard there might be small u-joints to install that rectify this issue? Can someone confirm this for me before I drop unnecessary $$ on another set of locks?

Finally got around to the locks, of course it didn't go as planned. First I realized that I needed to grind down the end of the new shank as mine was square up to the end. Once that was done, I thought it would just slide in but the angle of the tumbler is too severe for the shank to fit in the latch and the lock to sit flush. I may have to order another set of locks and keys because the eBay ones I have don't have enough angle.

Why wouldn't they just make the tumbler directly across from the latch?!?

Ok great, definitely something I'll get to with some help and maybe a jack! I've assured it's the bumper, knocking it with the hand upward it makes clear contact. Something at some point happened on the passenger side of the car, likely it was swiped or ran along a wall, there's some scraping along the trim and the front fender isn't quite straight. Luckily no other damage or serious issues but I bet that's when the bumper got out of its place.
