64 IMPALA SS Glove Box lock

OK, had my glove box door off and glove box out for painting etc. Went to reassemble, and the lock tumbler fell out! I can't figure out how to reinstall the tumbler! The ignition switch was easier!! Help please!

Now I don't own a 1964 Chevrolet so I have never felt the need to own a 1964 Assembly manual. In the 1964 Chevrolet full size assembly manual you would be shown how it goes together: as every part on the car is listed by part number, with illustrations and instructions and torque values to assemble it.

This book is of inestimable worth to the owner of a 1964 Chevy full size car (far exceeding the usual $25 dollar fee to buy one). But since I don't own your car I haven't bought one. I suggest you do.

Failing in that I see this part illustrated for sale:


sitting next to this part:


And I think what if one screwed onto the back of the other to hold it in place.

Just thinking you know.

Thanks Big Dave. I have the assembly manual and it doesn't show how to assemble the lock/tumbler. It shows installing as an assembly! My tumbler fell out of the lock assembly!
