Oil access door latch M20J


Recommended Posts

The latch on my 1979 M20J SN 24-0806 oil access door broke today.  KM680 is the part I need from Camloc Alcoa, but they are no longer made and appear out of stock.  Lasar mentions using KM610-51 and drilling some new holes to make it work, but they are out of those too (I might can find one though).

does anyone have any better solutions that might have broken theirs also?  Those latches are a pain anyway.  I wonder if the newer style latches on later models could be used

How much different than this?

Looks pretty close.

From what my A&P and I can tell, different enough that the holes don’t line up and will require some drilling it appears and possibly a field check (or Lasar said field check for the KM610-51 if they had it anyway).  Might be my only option though

Describe broke.    I had the pin come out of mine on the road.    I pulled the cotterpins out of the travel tool box and put it back together.

It appears to us that a piece of metal on the latch actually broke apart

One way to find old parts….

Find a plane they are attached to, and drill out their rivets….

There are a few people that do this legally around here… :)

Find @Alan Fox @Jerry Pressley or @SheryLoewen

Best regards,
