Door latch identification

Im trying to figure out what type of latched my truck has. I would like to replace the door cards, interior latches, exterior latches and lock cyls w/o replacing the striker bolt on the door jamb.


Ive looked through some parts diagrams and don't see anything like mine.

Reason is: I broke off the inside latch a few days ago when the locking assembly seized from lack of lubrication.



Will a door latch like this:he type that has the lift handle on both sides fit my truck?



Fit on my truck without major modification? I want to take out the door cards anyway when replacing the doors.

If the door cards/latches are in good shape, don't throw them out. Some of the 83-84 door cards are difficult to find. For the front doors (truck cab, right?). You could use the anti-burst style locks with one of the replacement door cards (RN, irongoat etc.).

Matthew,

Yes, those are early 83-84 only 110 latches. If you don't want to change the strikers, you'll have to continue using that style of latch. These parts are getting scarce, but some searching of the UK vendors will turn them up. Here's the part numbers:

LH door handle - MUC1035
RH door handle - MUC1034
LH remote handle assembly - MUC1217
RH remote handle assembly - MUC1216
LH striker - MRC8445
RH striker - MRC8444

As mentioned, you can replace this lot with the anti-burst type found on the NAS trucks, but you'll have to change out the striker. They don't interchange. Then you can use NAS type door cards as well.

Mike

MUC1034/5 and the strikers are readily available in the UK. There is another version that is NLA and no one seems to have any left, they were apparently sourced form Santana. On your latches, does the lock cylinder mount in the pivot of the handle, or in a separate tube next to the pivot? The ones with the lock in the pivot are NLA, P/N MUC2290/1.

If those pics are of your doors, it looks like you have MUC1034/5. I have the other ones. In the long run I'll probably reskin my doors and switch to the ones you have.

Awesome info guys, I think ill end up changing to the ROW/NAS double sided swing up latch type. Parts seem more readily available and it seems to be a simpler design.

On that note it looks like some latch assemblies come with strikers so in the long run it wont be a big deal.


My locks are in the upper right corner of the assembly, not part of the pivot pin and not below the pivot pin.
