Having trouble with the door latches on a 69. The latches were pulled off by painter and now I'm putting them back on. When ever I tighten the latches to the door, the door locks will freeze in the locked position. If I loosen the screws that hold the latch on the lock the latch will work and the door can be opened. I have tried adjusting the conecing rods but that does not make a difference. Is there a part missing like a shim or something that is making this happen? Has anyone ran into this problem? Thanks

Not sure this would make a difference but there is a rubber gasket on the outside which would space it up about 0.015"
