SPLASHER PANS: We'll have the Duchess on the rack Tuesday for a lube and drive train fill check. We'll figure out how to modify the pans, and then they'll go to the body shop for repair, modification and paint.

BOOT: Scheduled for just after Halloween. Only a year behind intended completion. Covid.

LOCKING DOOR HANDLE: I bought this at Hershey without a lock. One was subsequently sent with keys (but no retaining screw), but I can't figure out how to install the lock into the handle. QUESTION What is the technique? Any suggestions much appreciated.

I can’t answer the question other than to say that it probably needs to be keyed first which you probably already know.

Thanks, Don, I sort of figured that, but it won't go in. For what I paid, it definitely should not be defective.

There are a few key pieces that need to be inside the handle to properly accept and retain the lock tumbler. if they are not installed it will not work.

I think everything is in there. The lock just won't slide into the handle. I know there's a 'trick' to it. Like to take it out, you have to stick a paper click in a tiny hole.

The tumblers need to be flush with the outside of the lock cylinder for it to be inserted which can only happen with the correct key in place. It won't work with the uncut keys in your photo.

Would suggest taking it to a locksmith and having the new cylinder fitted to your existing ignition key as was common practice by Packard.

That is what I was trying to say! The key code should be stamped on the lock and it can be cut from that or you can have it re-keyed to March your other lock(s).
