Rear Hatch Hardware Pictures????

I have been driving my Blazer around for about thirteen years with the rear hatch bouncing back and forth because all of the hardware was missing when I bought it. Last week I bought all of the rear hatch hardware. Now that I have it, I am not sure how it all goes together. Does anyone have pictures from the T-handle to the ends? I think I can figure out the T-handle and support bracket, rods and latches, but there are two other small parts that are not the same that I don't have a clue as to where they go. Any pics or ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks David

Thanks Bobby! That part I have figured out. I will try to post pictures tomorrow of the two pieces that I am unsure of, unless someone else posts more pictures beforehand.

Nice job with the kotter pins to hold the arms. I looked all over for the actual clips to hold them in place. I finally found some at a chev dealer in a small town that had stock still from years back. I only bought 1/2 dozen and should have bought all of them.

To the left of the springloaded thingymajiggers, above the T-handle spring thingymajigger. I hope I spelled thingymajigger correct. Thanks David

Re: Rear Hatch Hardware Pictures????

Thanks! That helps tremendously. One last question, In your photograph, there are two identical pieces above the T-handle spring thingymajigger and there is one piece to the left that is almost identical, but smaller. In the set that I bought, I have one large piece and one of the small pieces, Is this correct and if so, which goes on which side or did evil bay get me and I got a mismatched set? Thanks again!!! David

Those cover the bolts on the latch mechanism.





The smaller rubber tipped ones are bumpers and go here(I didn't reinstall mine)

Re: Rear Hatch Hardware Pictures????

this is a GREAT thread that should go into the blazer's/jimmy thread area and FAQ index. Thanks to all that posted as it helped me figure out mine I'm doing today (4 years after the original thread)

Re: Rear Hatch Hardware Pictures????

Where Can I purchase the rear hatch hardware? I just got a 1971 Blazer but it has no hardware installed, in fact some had fiberglassed in the outside holes.

Re: Rear Hatch Hardware Pictures????

Almost all have to be purchased original.
OEM originals are very hard to find because there are reproductions(repops) of only a few different parts. Most there are no reproductions.
So demand with low supply
Use the Parts Board on this Forum.

There is a center mechanism there right now!!!!

You need to buy quickly on the Parts Board, or you will lose out to the others.

I just went through this for along time.
Because I am restoring a 72 GMC Jimmy.

Will do some other responses later with more info.
