Thank you Donlock. Tried both sizes. 5/8th a bit too long and door loose/sloppy Then 3/8thnot long enough to have latch reach.
Tried 5/8thagain and I had to use the extra trim ring that was taken from another package and used with the 5/8th AND it’s a perfect fit.
Thanks for your insight and assistance.

Nope. Didnít t think about that.
Actually the new lock came with both a straight and bent. Off my memory the bent was a tad shorter in total length than the straight. I will have to check. The new lock doesnít t see as robust as the Universal key 751 lock.
I will continue to explore and see if I can find one as robust as the original 751 but not keyed universal.

If it's a standard fuel door for GT's you do realize the door can be ripped off without special tools using one hand, right?

Locks keep honest people out. Yep the door could be pried off as could any door.
The theft took place in my storage area where there are numberous rv s There are cameras but not in my area and I made the owner and mgr. aware of the theft

Don't need locks for honest people and doesn't make any difference to dishonest people if they really want what you have.
