Does anyone have a picture of the interior mechanism the handle attaches to. When mine is installed with the clip, it doesn't stay tight and the gear doesn't catch. I can push it on slightly farther and it'll work, but then comes loose again. Locking pin keeps it from coming off.

Here is a pic of mine with door panel off. Little curious about the grooves, that isn't in the window one.

Not sure what to do to keep it tight.

Sounds like the splines are wore out on your window handle. you're going need a new one.

The older I get, the more dangerous, I am !!!!

55 Shaker is right. Closeup of the handle in your top picture appears to show worn splines in the door handle. New ones are available from many sources- Chevs of the 40s, Filling Station, etc.

Thanks much. For anyone in the future, the portion attached to the door is called the door latch relay. Can't find that part, hopefully a new handle is all I need.

The splines on the door latch relay look good. As stated above, it's probably the handle splines that are worn out. If you push the handle on the relay with out the spring and without the C clip it should engage it snugly.

Your Chevy looks pretty clean going by your photo of the door.
Got any more pics? Have fun with it.

The handle is worn out.The drivers side gets used more so replace it with one of the rear handles until you get a replacement

The handles are pot metal and wear out from time to time.

This is my "barn find". Was my grandfather's. Been sitting in my dad's barn for at least 30 years, closer to 40. Right before he passed last summer he asked me to take it and do what he always meant to, make her run. All original. 216 with 3 on the tree. Still 6v. I've been tinkering with it since. New brake system, engine wouldn't turn at first but finally worked it out, generator, lists of small electrical issues, whitewalls, etc. Had the maiden run down the street and back, well almost all the way back. Towed her back the last 1/4 mile. I live on a hill and I think not enough gas in the tank when I was coming up that hill. Started right up in the garage. I'm excited. I'll take some more pics and post, but here's one.

Great looking 50. Great to keep it in the family. My folks had a 50 hardtop in the 50's.

That lack of fuel problem is probably the fuel pump.
When I was bringing mine home into the Adelaide Hills it was running really nicely until it had to go more than a few hundred yards uphill. If I could have finished the journey in reverse it would have been fine.
Good luck with it and enjoy.

Maybe I'll stop it on the hill on purpose and see. Now that I know I can always back down the hill and start her.
