I'm about to replace my original trunk lock housing with a NOS housing on my '66. Any tips? How do I remove the lock assembly and install it in the new housing?

the trunk lock is held in by a nut (about 5/8" i believe); It turns right to loosen if I recall correctly; the assembly is held in place by a spacer; once the nut is off the lock assembly comes straight out; the spacer remains on the inner side of the trunk; simple as that.
good luck. doug

thanks. I probably was not clear. After I remove the outer chrome housing, how do I get the lock assembly out (the tumbler) to install in the new chrome housing?
