Thank you for posting. Take a look at our 82-073 and 82-074 and let me know if these could work for you.

Hi, thanks for the quick responses. What is the difference between 82-073 and 82-074?

Each of these handles is meant to work with a different door thickness. You can see more information in each part's respective description.
A quick learner says:
Hello, The door thickness/width is 1.5inches. Would 82-073 or 83-073 fit. Thank you!

My suggestion would be to purchase the 82-074, which has a longer key spindle. You can simply cut it to length if you find that it is too long.
A quick learner says:
Thanks for the quick response and the suggestion to go with the 82-074. Final question, does the keeper need replacing or is it usable with the 82-074?
Please communicate.
Thank you!

The 82-074 is only a replacement for the handle, so your old mortise lock will still be the same. There will be no reason to change out the keeper.
A quick learner says:
Thank you greatly! You and SWISCO have been very helpful. I am pleased beyond measure. I will make the purchase tomorrow. Again, thank you for your knowledge, experience and time.
