  • 51 Champion door lock busted

    Ladies and Gents,

    Good evening all. I've run into a problem with the door locks for my 51 Champion. See, I had dropped it off at the locksmith to get new keys made which was successful. The problem is that the doors will not lock. The key turns and all but the rotor on the door does not lock up.

    What could be the problem? I've been trying to find a "roto lock" repair kit (as I think that may be the problem) but I haven't been able to find one for a 51 Stude. Does anyone know where I could find one? Thanks for your time.

    Respectfully,
    Andrew

    I notice in the latest Studebaker International catalog (page 119) that they list locks for both front and rear in your year - Right front 1949-52 car, all models 296794 $65.00 296795 Left front $70.00. Apart from that you could try Jim Lime at SI jim@studebaker-intl.com

      Thank you, Mr. Clements! I'll contact Mr. Lime for the parts. The locksmith remarked that it would be difficult to find locks but you made it easy. Thanks again.
