Rebuilding seat back hold down latches.

The rod can be center drilled on the lathe in order to form a new peened end, or it can be drilled for a pin. We used a pin on this one. The rod will be about 1/8” shorter than it was before. All the internal parts, including the rod can be discarded and new ones installed. I used stainless rods on mine before. I found that 1/4” lock washers bent flat work perfectly for the washers. A cotter pin can be used, but may not clear the sides of the barrel. Here a piece of heavy wire was used.
