Flatheadrider!

I think this has been covered on this forum; does the search function bring anything up?

The forum format will no longer allow me to upload my photos of the pin location.

Nothing on search about "How to R&R", just a couple of guys looking for a key . If you got anything (and can't post) I'lb be happy if you sent it to me directly , flatheadrider55@yahoo.com .

If you get a magnifing glass and look above the lock you may be lucky enough to find the roll pin that holds the lock in. Mark the spot then take the frame to a really great heliarc welder with good eyes. Have them weld a small blob on the end of the roll pin, being very careful to not weld it to the frame. Then grab the blob with vicegrips. Twist gently while pulling on the pin and you may be lucky enough to get it out.

Chris!

Do you know what year they went from a screw with the head chiseled off to a roll pin?

Thanks in advance,

Cotten,
I have never seen a screw.

Chris!

It has been a while since I touched any at all, but I encountered more of the soft "pins" than hardened roll-pins.
(Granted, some were Indians...)

My suspicion is that the change-over may have coincided with the stainless cover on the lock core.

Many thanks to Pa and our Host!

Now let's hope traffic picks up on this fine forum.

PS: It still doesn't work on my antique shop PC....
Maybe it will work on my semi-antique PC at home.

It all my own fault for trying to punish an obsolete pile of hardware down the "information highway".
Everybody knows how futile that can be.

I was able to post a pic in my brass cleaning topic, thus eliminating the external link I had posted.
