    I bought a new cylinder for my 76 Big Ten from LMC, considering I only live 10 minutes away from them... The cylinder did not come with the tumblers. I have had a hell of a time figuring out how the new cylinder goes in there without the tumblers. I just zip tied the glove box shut lol. If I get pulled over I have cut the zip tie every time to get out my registration... But o do I love having a registered antique, only 17 dollars for property tax in January lol...

    That was AWESOME!!!

    My '84 C10 latch was not broken, but it was loose and the rattling/buzzing of my glovebox door drove me nuts. I used the procedure from this thread, and I had a silent glovebox door in 5 minutes.

    This was pure gold. Poster deserves a man hug.

    so I got the wrecking yard box apart as per instructions. I would have never figured it out. tomorrow I will take my truck one apart and replace the no good original.
    Rant; if Chevy had spent a little more on the plastic box hinge and less on an overly complicated latch assy. we would not have to be going thru this!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean who has an 8 sided allen type tool to unscrew that nut????!!!!!!!!
