Door catches

Discussion in 'General Amphicar Discussion' started by DAVIS,BRIAN R, Feb 10, 2001.


    My left door doesn't always close all the way without lifting it slightly as
    I slam it. Upon investigation, I noticed that there is a grove worn in the
    top of the catch (that's the piece that's attached to the body). The groove
    was worn by the door latch rubbing on it.

    This all translates to a situation where the door isn't lifted quite high
    enough as it latches. As a result, the ratchet wheel doesn't engage

    Have any of you noticed this, or had similar problems?

    Have any of you ever tried adding some material back on top of the catch by
    welding it and grinding it down?

    Thx, Brian Davis
