Re: The adventure never ends

Bob both ends are pinned using roll pins, the lock end pin is longer than the cam end, if you look carefully you will see the pin sticking out, the pin also prevents the lock turning too far. The rod is very easy for a machine shop to make. The shafts for the 5 and 6 are different lengths.
