Is This a Door Latch Problem?
On my '67 driver's door, the inside handle must be raised nearly to the top of its travel before the latch will "pop open". The outside button works just fine and the lock, key and button, also works perfectly. Is this a worn latch problem or could the previous owner have used a rod that's a little too long when he built the car? He did a frame-off on the car, so I don't think it's a dirt and old grease thing. I'm wondering if the part of the latch activated by the inside handle could be worn while the rest is OK. It works well except that the handle has to be lifted so high. Any thoughts? Thank you.
