Found this in the 40 behind the metal that protects/hides the filler neck for the gas tank. It's about a foot long if that helps.

Agreed with Wes...Those parts look familiar to what I saw the couple times I worked on my ambi doors on my '76...The segmented piece at the handle area and the longer section went down (and another one up) to the lower part of the door to pull up (and down) the latch part that hit the striker...

Wes called it in 8 minutes time. Impressive! The best I came up with was an attempt at a pilot bearing puller.

Thanks Jeff for the picture. It all makes sense now, as the last two times I've put my left rear door on the lever hasn't really worked correctly for opening and closing. Now I think I know why....

so you found it down in the filler neck? Wonder how it got down there?

I had a love/hate relationship with the doors on my '76 :hill: - I replaced the striker plates, shimmed them, farted around with the internal parts (which can be a PITA to work on btw) way more times than I'd like to remember etc. all in an effort to have doors that would just stay shut...

Lots of body flex back there meant my doors would just swing open at will, typically at the most inopportune time...Like when heading up out of the Ski Sunlight area to go hunting - uphill, bumpy/washboard dirt road = doors flew open, and my all gear jettisoned itself out the back and across the road :eek:

Of course the earlier years with the 1 ton top hatch (ok, it isn't really that heavy) that likes to fall down and clock you on the noggin isn't much better...pick your poison :)

only reason they fall is because people count on the strut to hold em. there is a lock on them for a reason.;)
