I'm thinking this is a classic case of worn out door handle - which I know
is happening on another Tornado Red '84.  The trigger, I think, just
bends/fatigues over time....

I decided I was sick and tired of having to push on the window frame to get
enough door pressure to make the outside trigger latch do anything, so I
ordered new latch-pins that screw into the body.  The originals had long ago
lost any plastic and were in need of replaced.

So I replaced them last night in the 105deg cool Houston evening.  Only 90%
Humidity.  As you might guess my patience did not last long... I could only
get the outside trigger latch to work with the latch-pin set in the
outside-most position, resulting in the door not lining up flush with the

I presume there must be some internal adjustments on the actuator rods (ala:
5000/200?) that will allow me to put the pin in the correct position, but
allow the exterior trigger latch to open the door.  It's worth noting the
interior latch works fine no matter where I put the pin.

So what's the best adjustment procedures out there, and is this a no-beer,
or drink first until relaxed kind of thing?
