  Hi Im rebuilding my mercury 1949. Im trying to figure out all the bolts size and threads from my doors.
I found that the 2 from the strikers are 1/4-28?
the 4 from the door latch are 3/16-?
the 6 from each Door Hinge are 5/16-24?
Anybody knows?

thank you

  Sorry that it took so long to answer your question But I don't have a 49 Mercury Body Parts Catalog and the Chassis catalog does not cover the latch.

The Ford latch is held on by 12-24 x 1/2" or 12-24 x 3/8" screws with lock washers.
