Part J 9 and J 9A Door strikers
The door striker is a pin on a bracket (LH and RH versions) that slides into the door lock. Part Nº unknown. To adjust the position of the striker in relation to the door lock (also to compensate dimensional variation in door-manufacturing) spacers are available in various thicknesses.
The pin of the striker is about ¾” (19 to 20 mm) long (measured from its baseplate without any spacers placed). The pin of the striker has a “tough life” and is often damaged. The pin has a triangular shape, but it can be repaired using a steel rod of about ⅜” (9 to 10 mm) in diameter welded to the (remains of) the original pin.
