Default Snow Trac ST4 door latch wanted

I'm looking for a rear door latch for my 1958 ST4 like the ones pictured. I have tried several different year VW bus pieces but the holes for mounting and the lock shaft/keyway are not correct.

I edited your title to correct the mistake made by auto-correct!

Try Ag and construction machinery cabs from the same vintage, the 60 and 70's.

Cat and several other manufactures used latches like this back in the day.

To get a dead nuts match might be hard to do however..

Thanks for the tip. I was hoping to find someone in the great white north with access to a stash of ST4 hulks that were too far gone to restore. Ya never know.

Yes I kind of figured that. It helps to have connections up there.

Since the rebuilding of the Snow Trac now seems to be an obsession with some great guys in Alaska, a good connection is even tougher to find. Also I remember a while back there was a member here from Alaska pretty much looking for the same latch.

On a machine that has seen heavy use, over many decades, one has to wonder if these just don't wear out or break. There is only one door on a Snow Trac, and every body uses it!

Ok you fellers up in Ak, anyone got a good lead on a rear door latch??

Regards, Kirk

I do believe they are the same as a older international tractor and some of the Bombardiers I will check next time at when we go to the other warehouse about a week or so.
