Hello All!

(Posted this in the "Interior Questions" section and thought I should post it here also, sorry if that reasoning is wrong.)

I had a question: so I installed the door latch control and the door latch on my truck last night. The issue is that whenever I go to try to open the door from the inside it seems that the little rod that connects to the door latch doesn't travel enough to actually open the door. I move the door handles toward the back on the truck and it locks just fine. I go the opposite direction, but it does not open the door. I need to open it from the outside.

Am I missing something? Is there some adjustment I should be looking at?

Full disclosure, the door latch control is attached by three screws, well the bottom screw is not really a screw more like a fastener with a nut on the back because the door had a hole where the screw needed to go into. Not sure if it is relevant, but figured I should mention it.

If pictures are needed I will try to get some later today after work and school.

For reference, I have used the following picture form the LMC website(#10 and #7):

Hey folks!

Here is a picture of what I have installed.

In the first picture that is where the door latch control is attached to the door latch itself. The second one is my new door latch, and the final one is the actual door latch control I am using.

Not sure if you figured this out or not, but if I'm not mistaken it appears you are messing with the passenger door. My suggestion is look at your latch control. If I'm not mistaken on my 1960, the arm is on top of the latch control on the driver side and on the bottom side on the passenger. Yours appears to be on the top on the passenger side.

Have no clue if that is the issue but might be worth looking into. My panel is off if you'd like a picture of mine.
