Seeking parts source

FYI the WorldPac door handles that have been shipping recently kinda suck. The lock tumbler is one sided where the factory lock is two sided and the parts are incompatible. The individual things in the tumbler are also different from OE which means you can not re-key the new lock to match your old key. I returned the last one they sold me and repaired the broken door handle (very careful slow work with a TIG welder).
