62 Deck Lock Issues

Post by fab415 »

I am struggling to get the deck lock mechanisms to close properly on my 62 LCC. My convertible top and decklid are fully functional. But I cannot get the decklid to fully close and cinch down properly. I've done my best to measure and align the female receptacles with the male locking mechanisms (63" apart), and they do engage, but not fully, and not perfectly simultaneously, and then the limit switch is triggered (which is as far down as it will go). And then the edge if the decklid ends up about 1/2"-3/4" above the body of the car. Any advice or recommended procedure? I'm guessing this has been covered here before.

Thanks,
Fab
