    Here’s the latch on a 54 kitten Your design looks a little different - looks like it’s already sprung to return and you just need a bolt with a button on it to cycle it - looks like your bolt is broken off right at the face of the bar

    What are your thoughts on the ‘54 12v generator? Could it have had a 12v generator in it originally?

    Well - I had hoped to reuse the original fuel tank - but after further investigation - it is completely rotted out. Just hitting the outside with a pressure washer blew a bunch of holes through it. I’ll have a new one built that will look very similar.
