Default '84 PT36 Deadbolt Replacement

I need to replace the entry door deadbolt and am looking for a source for the deadbolt slide portion of the lock. The deadbolt looks like it has a raised center portion rather than the typical flat rectangular face.

I have attached a picture of the edge of the entry door where the deadbolt is located.

Does anyone know where I can find a source for the deadbolt? I will really appreciate any help that can be provided.

Dave,
John Finn just replaced his. He can probably give you a source.

I did just replace mine but it had previously been replaced with a Kwikset dead bolt, so I matched that up with a similar new Kwikset deadbolt found at Home Depot, it involved some modifications to the door.

Look for the brand name of your deadbolt on the outside key lock face.

I just went through a dead bolt re-key
As my rig was a repo.
As it turns out the bore and door thickness of the bird is different than the standard house lock. However the barrel from a new schlage lock worked in my original Dexter.
If you do need to replace the whole unit
Take a look at Mcmaster-Carr website lots of stuff.

I know Blue Bird changed things at their whim, but mine is a Dexter and has a cone shaped hole in the dead bolt to engage the bolt of the electric lock operated by the dash switch.

Hmmm Bill, how did you gain such knowledge?

I have fond memories of Carol and I being locked inside my coach at the warehouse!
