hahaha yep thats the problem area!! pain in the neck hahaha. plus the actual T bar handle bit that you turn on the outside is stuffed too, i think, its just like it spins but without open anything haha. thats probably the bit i need most, cause making another inside part wldnt b too hard

rare spares have them but not sure how good they are or cost... you could also try Clasic Oz Wreck in Toronto on 02-49594546. he has lots of bits... helped me out when i needed it.

Hi Matt.
ring Garry at Kempsey auto dismantlers.65626720 He,s got a cple vans in the yard but make sure you got plenty of time to talk cause the bastard loves talkin. if he dosnt have a good one id be very supprised.
Hes got the largest supply of older cars on the mid nth coast.

If not grafton wreckers could have one cause hes got older cars too.

Nice to see another mid nth coaster with a van.. Very Happy

I`ll probably start something here but that part looks the same as the ones they use in the FORD tailgates except the Ford one looks a bit more solid Embarassed

i feel its worth changing them on all the vans as they DO were out and new is better than old in most cases.

just wanted to say thanks for the info on kempsey auto dismantlers geoff!!! gary was great, rung him up last friday and then went down saturday morning to pick up my handle Very Happy was stoked to finally get one!!! the only thing was it didnt come with a key, so hopefully i can take the barrell out of my old one and put it into the new one! wouldnt happen to know if it can be done, or know of anyone who has done it? but gary was great bloke, and sure does love to chat spent like 45mins walking round the yard looking at different cars talking to him!

was amazed to see he had a complete cl valliant panelvan in there!!!! nice van, bit of rust, but wld b the best project! especially for $500!! Very Happy

anyways thanks again!

handle

Post by Mans Ruin on 3/2/2010, 1:14 am

gday mate, ive got one or two spare tbar handles in my shed, the bit in the pic you hav is broken on mine to but the rest is good. if you dont get one at the wreckers let my know and ill send one your way. i dont need them as ive deleted it off my van. btw i dont have th keys, but a locksmith could sort that.

Like i said, he loves a chat. Shocked
hope he didnt sting you too much for it, he knows he's the only one around here with older stuff and charges accordingly. as for the chrysler, I listed it on this forum to see if anyone could save it but obviosly its still sitting there rusting away No might have to save it myself if its not gone by april.

yea he sure does haha
um nah his price for the handle wasnt too bad, cheaper then ive ever seen them on ebay anyways. but i was thinking of getting a station wagon rear bumper for the back of my van, i thort his price for that was a tad expensive but then again, im not even sure exactly wat they r worth. still mite get one tho cause im too lazy to travel to grafton or sydney to try and get one cheaper hahaha Very Happy

yea was such a shame to see the chysler there rusting away, especially for such a rare and awesome van Sad !! i thort about buying it and even talked to my old man bout it, but i dunno if i can afford to do it atm, plus finding space at mine for it and since im already doing my wb up would make it kind of hard, wish i cld tho!!!!

anyways thanx again

Do you still have the rubber that goes between the metal sleeve and the body?
