door lock pins
« on: January 28, 2012, 09:26:53 AM »
I am trying to get Bob as original as possible. I am interested in the door lock pins in Aurokrafters page 6. The original pins had knob on the top. This was not a good design, as you could put a coat hanger through the door trim and pull up on the knob. The first thing everyone did in those days, for security reasons, was install an aftermarket pin that was a smooth shaft. I have given up on getting any used or nos pins. Do the Autokrafter pins match the original? What was the original color?
Thanks for the help.

Actually, of late I like that knob design, as I've locked my keys in my cars MUCH too often! lol  :P
One can never have too many Pintos!

the ones on my bobcat were chrome and round head  i replaced them with some from the parts store  but they dont sell them like that any more.now they sell the ones like autokrafters sell. i have seen some in the junk yards  though, even on different makes of cars.

If you end up not wanting the black octagon ones, CJ Pony Parts sells the smooth ones:

I bought a replacement set of the black octagon ones for my 78 Sedan, and they matched the original ones. I got mine from Rock Auto though.

Hey joebob:

The Ford part number for the knob is D5OZ6521850A or D5OZ6521850B.  It was a chrome octagonal head.  This was used on all Fords between 73/78.  It was probably also used on Bobcats.  Green Sales Company presently has 11 NOS of B and 9 NOS of A.  Give them a call and ask for “Doc”.  He is very knowledgeable about Pintos and should be able to help.  Here is the link and the phone.

Hope this helps.

Doc was on vacation but I bought them anyway. $7 ea plus $10 shipping. All for something no one but me will notice. This is the last part that I needed for complete restoration with the exception of battery, shocks and oil filter. Those things I did not think were worth the effort.
thanks

My dad got my Pinto's door open pretty easily sticking a coathanger between the door frame and window on the outside. They're pretty simple to get into even when the windows are all the way up. I went outside and it looked like my car rolled halfway across the parking lot, but I knew it was him. I've seen him unlock my Ranger before.

Were the smooth ones stock on later Pintos? Mine had a pair of those in the ash tray, and some piston shaped ones on the doors.
