Broken Seat Lock Mechanism

Turned the key to lift the seat and nothing happened.

Was able to remove the hinge pins, tilt the seat, and get enough room to remove the part of the lock that attaches to the seat.

Got the lock off and many pieces came out of it! It failed at the end of the lock cylinder that moves the latch that hooks the seat pin. Hard to explain.....hope someone know what I'm talking about! :D

Oh yeah..'72 350 K4

Looks like a NOS one can be had for $50. Also watching Ebay and have a few feelers out to some local boneyards.

Has anyone solved a broken seat lock another way? You know, the Mcgyver way? :lol:

Well, guess this isn't really an electrical issue. lol

Mods, feel free to move it to Mechanical. lol
^ Yeah, done that. I've been riding. Just wondering if anyone has gotten creative
Thanks. I do have the lock with the two Phillips screws. I also have the lock pins out, but afraid they have gotten shuffled around on the bench. If I repair this one to use the key, it's going to be a puzzle getting the different sized pins in the right order for the key to work :lol:
