Are those door handles the later ones for the 86 and on or the trouser ripper ones on the 80"?

Being pedantic, they are not really door handles at all, They are door locks.

The late 80" "Trouser ripper" door handle is a totally different part.   Seperate from the lock being offered for sale.

The parts catalogue describes this item as "Door Lock, Complete"  They are the 80" door lock.

Thanks, yes, realised that. The inner part on my trouser ripper handles is well worn so the handle has alot of movement. Its similar to what I can see in the image, but wasn't sure without seeing the complete image, so was just wondering when I saw this if it was in fact the inner part for the trouser ripper handle.

Don't go on what i say,  I just thought from partial image it was 80" lock.  I don't know where magazine is ATM to check.  Best you check for yourself which lock it is.

Checking the parts catalogues on my desk the same part numbers are  used for at least 80" with trouser ripper handles and later  series ones 86,88,107,109 . I've certainly replaced both the handles on my 80" (1953 MY) and my 88" with the same parts some bought years ago some bought from Craddocks via ebay this year turned up in (2days amazingly)  Quality is Ok not as good as originals but they certainly fit and work.

I presume originally these would have been from Willmot Breedon  or similar and probably had other applications, so you may be able to source better quality/ originals from a non LR supplier ?

I believe the one on the left with 3 mounting holes and a rounded striker  belongs to   54-58 models.   
 The one on the right with 2 mounting holes, beveled striker and cut-out for the handle to  48-53 models.

Excellent photo :)
That seems about right as I drilled the extra holes in the ones for my 88" from memory.  They fit and work just fine I found.
So I guess you can argue that the ones advertised are 80" spec, but as I say the same part numbers were used by Rover right the way through, so should be interchangeable.

My understating is that functionally interchangeable parts (even if they looked different or were different in ways that did not impact their ability  to function)  retained the same number. Parts that were not interchangeable but performed the same function got a new number.

The comment about the shape of the striker is interesting!

Agree about the holes of course. Very similar latches are found on coachbuilt bodies from the 20's at least on and are still available from some of the specialists.

I thought it was the other way round - earlier had the curved strikers and later the bevelled ones. Probably I am wrong.

Perhaps they are a special version which play "In the lord place I my trust" when the door is opened.

You could well be right. I brought this subject up once before, but all I got was blank stares.
