It's nice when you can find those lost parts. The chrome center knobs were used 
up thru '69.

I don't think I've ever had that knob off. The parts list shows a clip: 311 881

Look in the rear edge of the door. Above the latch you will find a small hole, 
about 3/16" dia. There was originally a plastic plug in that hole. Remove the 
plug and dribble some oil down inside the door. It should work its way to the 
latch mechanism. Put the plug back in the hole.
