So, is the plate inside the door loose, so it falls down inside the door for retrieval and rethreading? If yes, then all is well. Thank you for your post.
Regarding replacement screws, bearings and seals, hydraulic hoses, fuel and brake lines, fittings, etc, I live in Tacoma WA, best characterized as a very large mill town. Even with the demise of all the mills, there is enough of the industrial infrastructure left to really help the restorer. We have a large regional threaded fastener supplier (Tacoma Screw), a bearing supply house (McGuire Bearings), and a really good hose shop (Williams Oil Filter Service) who stock or who can make just about anything ever known to man.
